It's time to read My Grandmother's Hands in community! You are welcome to join us whether you have participated before or are newly joining us.
We are organizing this reading with Music that Makes Community, an organization near and dear to our heart for their work to empower and liberate the spiritual life of communities through singing. Check out more of their work here.
Groups start late in April and continue meeting every other week for eight 90-minute sessions. Nine (!) scheduling options are available, including weekend and weekday evening. See the details, select your best times, and register on this scheduling survey form: https://forms.gle/XErMmM9vkjCBG2wQ9.
Greetings!If you're reading this you probably attended the Wednesday morning class of HNRS 4990 - In the Church & in the Streets: Music that Shapes the Soul & Rocks the World at St. Catherine University, St. Paul, MN.
Here's the setlist of what we sang (with links to online recordings!) and a few other resources we referred to during our time together.
We're convening folks from past reads of My Grandmother's Hands (MGH) for a time of community catchup, discernment, and mutual support on Thursday, March 17, 2022, 1-2:30 p.m. CT. RSVP here to receive the link to join, whether its for part or the whole time.
In particular, we will experience and explore the triad work Resmaa recommends in this Psychology Today article. Then you will be invited to consider making a commitment to continue this triad work with two others of the same racial affinity group.
If you haven't read MGH with us before, rest assured. We will be accompanying another set of groups starting in late April. Details are being worked out at the moment, so stayed tuned by signing up for our MGH newsletter.
