On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to move to the back of the bus to accommodate white passengers. She was not the first Black person to hear this request. A few months prior, on March 2, 1955, 15-year-old Claudette Covin was arrested in Montgomery, Alabama, for also refusing to give up her seat to a white woman on a crowded, segregated bus. The year 1955 was a pivotal year and December 1st was a tipping point in civil rights, sparking 381 days of protesting injustice.

In commemoration of the 66th anniversary of the Montgomery Bus Boycott, Faith & Prejudice is honored to begin 381 Days of Accurate Teaching, Truth & Collective Action. As we move into a new year, we rededicate ourselves to tackling systemic racism with an eye towards racial equity through the heart of the church. Faith & Prejudice is calling on fellow Christians to affirm that we will not lay aside this weight but look to God, a God of justice, to guide us through 381 Days of Accurate Teaching, Truth & Collective Action. 

 

As we embark upon 381 Days of Accurate Teaching, Truth, & Collective Action, we will begin a 31-Day equity challenge. The challenge is inspired by the work of Dr. Eddie Moore Jr., alongside other curators such as Christian Antwi, Michelle Thomas-Bush, Adam Alexander, Brian Shivers, Genie Richards, and Vance Stiles.


Join us for the next 31 days as we read, watch, meditate, worship, and pray to bring about a more equitable and just society and identify ways to expand our understanding of equity, power, privilege, supremacy, and oppression.
