NOTE: Unfortunately our books for the White Too Long book study have not been received yet, so Rev Freeman and I have decided to delay our first session for 2 weeks to Monday March 6th.
“To honestly be known is the first step to reconciliation, healing and ultimately love.”

The breach in racial relationships in America is widening. We the people of faith that comprise The Pennsylvania Interfaith Impact Network (PIIN) invite you to join us in a journey of knowing that we believe will mend the breach.
On Monday March 6th, 2023, from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm, you are invited to embark on a Zoom-based biweekly book study of White Too Long: The Legacy of White Supremacy in American Christianity by Robert P. Jones, selected by participants in our our previous book study. the President and founder of the nonprofit, nonpartisan PRRI (Public Religion Research Institute). Below is an interview with Jones by the National Center for Civil and Human Rights about this book:
Note from Paul: Rev. Freeman highly endorses this book and can’t wait to start this series.
We will be placing a group for hardcopies with those who wish to participate from The Tiny Bookstore at Pines Plaza in the North Hills, a Black-owned establishment. White Too Long is also available from the Carnegie Library system in hardcopy and (via the Libby app) in both audiobook and ebook.
Pre-registration is required. After your registration has been received, you will subsequently be sent a zoom link for the study group.
The PIIN Book Study Group welcomes you to join us for this deeply personal experience. We anticipate this experience will evoke some raw emotions. As a result, book study participants agree to a covenant of caring, respect, and privacy within the group. We know this work is sacred. Bring your best self to the table.
