NETWORKING & DISCUSSION: RACISM, FORGIVENESS & RECONCILIATION
Dec 14, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - Dec 31, 2014 @ 8:30 pm| Free
The Brooklyn Ark is proud to host guest speaker Abel Richard from Cape Town, South Africa. Abel grew up in a country sick with a long history of apartheid and institutionalized racism. From an early age, he knew what it felt like to wrestle with inner anger for others choosing to mistreatment him due to the color of his skin. Come out and listen to Abel tell his inspiring life story regarding how he transitioned from a life of racial hatred to understanding and expressing God’s forgiveness.
Gather from 6:00-8:30pm at our fantastic event space located at 48 Wall Street (5th Floor) to join with a diverse group of New Yorkers in a spirit of unity as we declare the equality of every shade of skin. (A, C, E, J, R, Z, 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 trains.) You will meet new friends, enjoy fantastic food, and engage in the rich discussion on racism, forgiveness, and reconciliation. People from all nations and faith backgrounds are welcome to attend.
