  • Please consider joining the Hunger and Justice Committee as we spend time in study and conversation about “A Good Time for the Truth: Race in Minnesota”. This book, published in 2016, lifts up voices of 16 different Minnesotan writers who share varying perspectives on what it means to live as a person of color in the state of Minnesota.  One review shared that “[The authors] give readers a splendid gift: the gift of touching another human being’s inner reality, behind masks and veils and politeness. They bring us generously into experiences that we must understand if we are to come together in real relationships.”


    We will be meeting every Thursday evening from 6:30-7:30pm for six weeks,
    beginning April 15th and ending May 20th.
