Race and Justice (May 2024)

According to historian Rebecca Goetz, the idea that Christianity and heathenism were hereditary “found its full expression in the Americas.” During May, we will explore the tragically entangled history of Christianity and race in America to understand how people of faith used theology to weaponize human difference. Racial justice work in our time will require ongoing spiritual and theological reckoning with the ways religious beliefs continue to shape racist antipathies. 

Bonnie Kwon is our May speaker
