Austin Channing Brown in Madison 3/9!

March 9, 9:30 am - 5 pmAustin Channing Brown 2018

Pastor Randy and the CE Committee invite you to join us for a day of learning with author Austin Channing Brown. The day includes a keynote and discussion on how white, middle-class, Evangelicalism has participated in an era of rising racial hostility, inviting us to confront apathy, recognize God's ongoing work in the world, and discover how blackness--if we let it--can save us all. 

The event, hosted by the Wisconsin Council of Churches, is March 9 at First Baptist Church in Madison, from 9:30 am - 5 pm. Please let Ben Menghini or Pastor Randy know if you are interested in attending.

Austin Channing Brown is a leading new voice on racial justice, and the author of the compelling autobiographical book, I'm Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness. Austin is committed to exploring the intersections of racial justice, faith, and black womanhood. Her talks are one of a kind, infused with justice, pop culture, humor, and truth-telling.
