What Forgiveness Looks Like
Aug 4 @ 11:00 am
What Forgiveness Looks Like @ Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture

What Forgiveness Looks Like is a beautiful piece with an amazing variety of artists that also supports a cause and changes lives. The show depicts what forgiveness looks like to different children after tragedy strikes in their lives. The founder of JungleDom, Simba Sandra Yangala was inspired to write the show by four children who live in the Congo, whom she supports spiritually and financially. These children have been abused in every sense of the word and will be represented as a Thinker, Dreamer, Singer, and Dancer. Proceeds from the show will be going to support the children’s visa fees, travel and allow them to have a life filled with opportunity and light.

Social Justice Book Club
Aug 26 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Social Justice Book Club @ Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture - Library
This group is a place where we read and discuss books by black authors.  The result is a discussion which helps us express both personal and systemic acts of racism, privilege, and economic self-interest in the United States.  It is a place to learn and contribute in an emotionally safe environment.
The next Racial Justice Book Group meeting is Monday, August 26th, from 6 – 8 pm on the second floor at BSEC.  This month the group decided to discuss Kicked Off the Land | The New Yorker.
