Once again, we are pleased to offer an FGC Institutional Assessment on Racism update, as requested by petition at the 2016 Gathering. In 2017 FGC retained Crossroads, a nonprofit organization that works with faith communities to facilitate working toward anti-racist transformation. Crossroads has contracted with us to train and work with FGC over the next year to conduct our Institutional Assessment.

La'Ron Williams - Culture of Struggle; Culture of Faith: Using Storytelling to Help the Truth Survive in a Nation Riddled with Lies

Nationally acclaimed and award winning storyteller La’Ron Williams shares stories that are educational, musical, and highly participatory. Drawing inspiration from the lessons of struggle, perseverance, and survival of Africans in the Western Hemisphere, Williams’ tales are noted for their ability to offer hope, and to provide alternatives to despair. He always sings, he always plays some kind of music, and he always has a good time. We believe you will, too.
