Conversation 2: Racial Harm and Harmony Among Mennonites
Tuesday, October 26, 2021, 8 PM ET
North American Mennonites from racial minorities have not always been fully embraced by their Mennonite brothers and sisters. In this session, reflect on historic documents collected in North American archives that show the attempts and failures at racial reconciliation. Also, hear from John Powell about the Minority Ministries Council formed in 1969 to represent Mennonites of color in the (old) Mennonite Church and his continued work for racial justice. John is a former Mennonite pastor and administrator, and a civil rights activist. In break-out groups with a facilitator, discuss how Anabaptists can play a meaningful part in the hard work of racial justice and reconciliation.
