A coalition of community partners including Knollwood announces an evening with Nikole Hannah-Jones, nationally recognized author and recipient of a MacArthur Genius grant. Ms. Hannah-Jones covers racial injustice for The New York Times Magazine and has spent years chronicling the way official policy has created—and maintains— racial segregation in housing and schools. Her deeply personal reports on the black experience in America offer a compelling case for greater equity. She is currently writing a book on school segregation called The Problem We All Live With.

Deuteronomy 30:15-20
1 Corinthians 3:1-9
Matthew 5:21-26

Jesus warns that unrestrained anger makes one “liable to judgment” (Mt. 5:21). Unless such anger is examined, tested, and winnowed, it can destroy relationships and community. Thankfully, Jesus teaches us what to do when we’re “mad as hell.”
