Anthony Pinn’s new book, When Colorblindness Isn’t The Answer: Humanism and the Challenge of Race (order your copy today at Pitchstone Publishing or Amazon), provides an instructive manual for humanists seeking to bridge the gap between humanist theory and praxis when it comes to racial justice. You can read a book review here.
The UU Humanist Association, and our related organization, the American Humanist Association affirm and celebrate humanism’s commitment to social justice advocacy by promoting this important work exploring racism, one of the defining biases of society. This discussion guide was created to encourage deeper engagement with the book’s humanist-centered ideas intended to develop a more race conscious humanist community.
Racism demands attention. The content and scope of life in the United States depend in significant ways on how the ongoing challenge of racism is addressed. We hope that you join us as we seek to more directly tie our progressive life philosophy with racial justice.
