VIDEO – CCS Friday: The Pandemic of Racism
On Friday, March 12, 2021 the Centre for Christian Studies hosted an online discussion of the ways in which the Covid-19 pandemic exposes long-standing racial divisions and systemic injustices, and perhaps to imagine opportunities for change. Our special guest was Kim Uyede-Kai, minister for Communities of Faith Support and Right Relations at the Shining Waters Regional Council of the United Church of Canada. In 2020 Kim published an article called “COVID-19 and the Racism Pandemic We Need To Talk About.”
In this CCS Friday video Kim recommends an NBC documentary, “The Racism Virus“, which can be viewed on YouTube.
