Dismantling Racism with Youth

Advice for Youth Ministers, Almeda Wright and Nyle Fort – Video and Discussion Outline

Dr. Almeda Wright and Nyle Fort offer some practical advice to youth ministers.

Questions for a Black or Racially Mixed Youth Group:

  1. What challenges might arise in intertwining politics with religion? How do our individual political beliefs challenge our theology?
  2. How might parents and church leaders resist this?

Questions for a Predominately White Youth Group:

  1. How might we follow our young people along this road? What are the resources that we can contribute to what the youth are already doing?
  2. What would “radical listening,” as Wright offers, look like in our setting? And how does that enhance their capabilities to do ministry and to make a difference?
