Monday, June 15, 7 p.m. CDT
Presented by Sewanee The University of the South – The School of Theology
The protests and demonstrations we see around the world are responding to generations of systemic violence against Black people in the United States. Even as many in The Episcopal Church now join these protests, we know that historically The Episcopal Church has participated in slavery, segregation, and abuse of civil rights. As part of the Advanced Degrees Program, a public lecture via Zoom will be held on June 15 at 7 p.m. CDT titled Christianity and Race: The story goes on (and on).
Panelists will speak about the origins and continuation of racial injustice in Sewanee, the Church, the nation, and the world, while also highlighting the African Americans who, in the face of such violence, have shaped us for the better. Panelists include the Rt. Rev. Carlye Hughes, Bishop of the Diocese of Newark; Dr. Jody Lynn Allen, professor of history at William & Mary University; Dr. Woody Register, professor of history at the University of the South; and the Rev. Dr. Ben King, associate professor of Church history at the School of Theology. Click here to register.
