An event every week that begins at 5:30 pm on Thursday, repeating until October 14, 2021

Book study of Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye.

 

Readers will explore the deadly interaction of racial self-contempt and the desirability and privileging of whiteness to discern potential new insights into the nature of God and justice for our own time.

 

September 23 & 30; October 7 & 14
5:30 PM via Zoom

In Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye, the author confronts the devastating impact of monstrous hatred and demonization of Blackness on the most vulnerable person in society: a Black girl. The novel invites readers into a story that begs fundamental questions about life and meaning amid great suffering. Where is God? Where is justice? What new insight about God and justice might an engagement with literature yield? In reading The Bluest Eye, we will explore the deadly interaction of racial self-contempt and the desirability and privileging of whiteness to discern potential new insights into the nature of God and justice for our own time and witness. Join Lead Minister DeWayne Davis to explore the image of God and the presence of justice in The Bluest Eye. To reserve your space, contact DeWayne Davis at dewayned@plymouth.org. Please secure a copy of the novel before the first meeting.
