Where is the Hope? with Rev. June R. Cooper
December 6, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Signs of Hope: Derrick Bell, a noted Harvard Professor, wrote a book called Faces at the Bottom of the Well, The Permanence of Racism (1992) in which he states that racism is a permanent feature of American society. Do we accept this claim or do we see hope rising for recent protest and calls for police reform?
Reverend June R. Cooper is the Executive Director of City Mission Boston, a social justice organization that is addressing family homelessness and racial inequity and reconciliation. She also serves as the Theologian in the City at Old South Church in Copley Square.
