Discussion of an excerpt from:
Race Systemic Violence, and Retrospective Justice:
An African-American Quaker Scholar-Activist Challenges Conventional Narratives,
p. 20-31
by Harold D. Weaver, Jr.

Please join us for this reading and discussion. This event welcomes and is open to all.

What can we do as individuals and collectively for the prevention, treatment, and cure of our societal illnesses—ethical, moral, spiritual, psychological, social, economic? How can we make a sustained commitment to helping our neighbors, our brothers and sisters, our friends and our adversaries? Can Friends “be leaders, innovators, and initiators in these efforts at reconciliation, reconstruction, and rehabilitation?” Weaver outlines a path forward to do this through a re-education program, a program for retrospective justice, and a revitalized justice testimony.
