Courageous Conversations 5782 Thursdays | 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. on ZOOM


Antioch Missionary Baptist Church and Temple Beth-El have been engaged in dialogue and fellowship since 2016 with our annual Martin Luther King Jr. Sabbath Exchange.  This year we invite you to deepen the dialogue with a monthly book discussion of Isabel Wilkerson’s Pulitzer Prize winning book, Caste: The Origins of our Discontents.   From October through April, Rabbi Mara Nathan and Pastor Kenneth Kemp will lead us through a discussion of Wilkerson’s powerful and thought-provoking work. Our book discussion will culminate with a city-wide event featuring a presentation by Wilkerson.
