I am White, We are Black

An event on racism at NTS (November 17, 2017).

One of the first challenges to conversations about race is culture. Keith (he’s white) and Kevin (he’s black) attack the race conversation head-on with a talk that will explore how cultural differences between white and black Americans often make this topic difficult to address. This lighthearted talk about a serious subject will have you laughing and crying as you’re inspired to bring the Kingdom of God to Kansas City and beyond.

  • Thursday, November 17, 2017
  • Check-In: Starts at 6:30pm
  • Event Time: 7pm – 9pm
  • Location: Koinonia Cafe at Nazarene Theological Seminary
