Courageous Conversations | Befriending Radical Disagreement

7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Who & What

Barrington’s Courageous Conversations is excited to kick off their 2021 events back in person at Barrington’s White House!

“How can friendships open our minds and expand our thinking? When Matthew Stevenson invited white nationalist R. Derek Black to Shabbat dinner, it set Derek on a transformative path toward unlearning his beliefs. The rest is chronicled in the book Rising Out of Hatred: The Awakening of a Former White Nationalist. What can we learn from their inspiring story? Join hosts Rev. Dr. Zina Jacque and Jessica Green to welcome Derek & Matthew to Courageous Conversations at Barrington’s White House. Presented in partnership with the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center.”
