Upholding & Undermining White Supremacy - how contemporary religious identity does both

Date & time:

  • -

Type of event: Webinar

Sponsor: Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, NGO Committee on Human Rights, UUA International Resources: UU Office at the United Nations

Robert Jones has recently published a well evidenced demonstration that White Supremacy and White Christianity share not only common roots but also contemporary synergies. This is counter-intuitive to many people of faith who share a conviction that faith (their religion particularly) is anti-racist. This event highlights and explores this commonplace misunderstanding and provide points of light, where religion plays a very positive role in dismantling racism and upholding the dignity of all humans.
