Pittsburgh Freethought Community, in association with American Humanist Assocation and the First Unitarian Church of Pittsburgh would like to thank Professor Anthony Pinn for his recent visit, sharing thoughts on race and humanism.
Professor Pinn is the Agnes Cullen Arnold Professor of Humanities and teaches Religious Studies at Rice University, winner of the 1999 African American Humanist Award from the Council for Secular Humanism, and the 2006 Harvard University Humanist Chaplaincy “Humanist of the Year.”
The October 28 event addressed white supremacy from a humanist (non-theist) perspective. The next part of the program, a 5-part workshop, will be held beginning November 11th based on Professor Pinn's book, When Colorblindness Isn't the Answer: Humanism and the Challenge of Race.
To learn more about Professor Pinn, visit the Anthony Pinn website.
Book study group based on the book When Colorblindness Isn’t the Answer: Humanism and the Challenge of Race by Professor Anthony B. Pinn. A copy of the book will be provided to participants.
The book deals with practical approaches toward understanding and actively working against white supremacy and racism. Though it is directed toward humanists, anyone with an open mind and a willingness to examine the difficult inter-personal issues that impact race relations is invited to participate. Attendance will be limited.
Fee: The modest fee of $5 will be collected at registration to partially offset the cost of Professor Pinn's book.
