Tea Talk: In the Beginning, There was the Word
February 17 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The relationship between religion and race in American is complex. 20th century scholars ranked world religions on an evolutionary scale. Not surprisingly, many of the religions deemed “primitive” were also those practiced by indigenous, non-White populations.
This evolutionary ranking plays a vital role in the construction, deconstruction, and transgression of racial identities and religious boundaries in the country today.
This panel of theologians will explore the relationship between church, race, and state and the role the church could play in healing the soul of the nation.
