“Interrupting Our Bias” – Concert and Workshop
Sunday, April 8, 12:30pm, Parish Hall
Please join us for an exciting multi-generational event. Bob and Eloise McGaw’s daughter is the co-founder with Tommy Shepherd of the Alphabet Rockers, the Grammy nominated kid-focused hip hop group from Oakland, California. They will be with us during both worship services, the RE program and for an after-church program. The group is dedicated to addressing complex issues surrounding identity and social justice through their hip hop music. Their passion is to create positive messages and modern beats to help children love who they are, fight bias, and celebrate difference.
Their Grammy-nominated album “Rise Shine #Woke”, created to interrupt racial bias and lift up the voices of young changemakers, has songs that bring joy to tough topics. Visit their web-site http://alphabetrockers.com/music-videos/
for more information. This participatory program will inspire and energize people of all ages.
