Dismantling Racism with Youth

Integrating Conversations About Race Into Programming, Evelyn Parker – Video and Discussion Outline

Dr. Evelyn Parker discusses ways to integrate conversations about race into programming in youth ministries.

Questions for all Youth Groups:

  1. What would best fit into our way of programming? Would a retreat or a handful of retreats work for us? Or could it be done over a longer, though less intensive, period of time?
  2. How might we be thoughtful about how to keep this topic in front of our youth, but also not to become drained by it?
  3. When can we ask youth, “What do you see?” and “How does it feel?” In which programs—Bible study, prayer, mission—might these questions become second nature, so that they become less stark when talking about race?
