THIS EVENT WAS POSTPONED TO WEDNESDAY, 11/11/15 AT 11:45 am. (due to weather-related issues).
How do we begin to make sense of where we find ourselves racially in this nation today? How do we enable our institutions and congregations to respond with prophetic power, insight and action? How can a focus on “whiteness” in our communities committed to justice help us develop a deeper understanding of the roles and relationships of white people to communities of color?
Ponder these questions and more with Dr. Jennifer Harvey…
Jennifer Harvey is Professor of Religion at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. A popular speaker and blogger, she is the author of Dear White Christians: For Those Still Longing for Racial Reconciliation. Her teaching, writing and public speaking focus on the intersections of religion and ethics with race, gender, activism, politics, spirituality, and justice. Her greatest passion and longtime work, however, continually return to racial justice and white anti-racism. She is especially committed to working with faith communities as they seek to cultivate effective, prophetic ministry in this regard. Jennifer is ordained in the American Baptist Churches, USA.
