Left Bank Books welcomes diversity educator Aaron Layton, who will sign and discuss his book, “Dear White Christian: What Every White Christian Needs to Know About How Black Christians See, Think, & Experience Racism in America,” with “We Live Here” hosts Kameel Stanley & Tim Lloyd!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of “Dear White Christian” from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

In the fall of 2014, during the racial and cultural events in Ferguson, MO, Aaron Layton desperately wanted to know what was going on in the minds of his white colleagues, friends, and fellow church members. So, he did what comes naturally to him, but might seem unnatural to many: he asked. The lessons he learned are the foundation of “Dear White Christian,” designed for any white Christian who seeks practical tools for beginning or continuing conversations with black brothers and sisters in Christ.
