Becoming Antiracists

This summer our Bishops announced that all parishes in the Episcopal Diocese of New York would be invited to participate in a holy conversation about racial justice while reading Ibram X Kendi’s book How to be an Antiracist. Addressing racism, white privilege and white supremacy requires a great deal of work that we cannot do alone. The most successful efforts in dismantling injustices in our society have historically required people of faith on the front lines.

St. Augustine’s will read this book together in September (schedule below). On October 22, we are invited to join an online event with Ibram X. Kendi.

If you want to participate in St. A’s reading group, please email Mother Jenny at

We will gather via Zoom on September 3rd, 17th and 24th at 12 pm and 7 pm for an hour-long guided discussion. Schedule of reading is as follows:

  • September 3rd: Chapters 1-6
  • September 17th: Chapters 7-12
  • September 24th: Chapters 13-18
