Event Details

Long before polls, protests, and political issues divided us, we were joined by a humanness that God considered very good. Created in his image, we reflected the height and depth of God’s loving-kindness, but our discord has blinded us to the imago Dei in us all.

In Human(Kind): How Reclaiming Human Worth and Embracing Radical Kindness Will Bring Us Back Together, advocate Ashlee Eiland shares her compelling story of being a black woman living on two sides of the fence: as the token black girl in majority-white spaces and as the “whitewashed” black girl in majority-black spaces.

As she discovers her own unique worth through these recollections, Eiland learns that extending radical kindness toward every person—regardless of social status, political views, or religious beliefs—gives each person hope and rekindles a common humanity and dignity.

With grace and humility, Human(Kind) invites readers to chart their own formative journeys and recognize their inherent value, cultivating empathy so we may once again see the image of God shining brightly within one another. Eiland truly believes that kindness can kindle a revolution!
