Religion and Race: Christian Perspectives on Critical Race Theory
Wednesday, December 8
6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. ET (US)
1050 Jenkins Nanovic Halls | Zoom Webinar
Over the past year, Critical Race Theory has become a hotly contested issue. Much of the recent debate has centered around school curricula in the context of a polarized electorate, but the issue touches on every aspect of society—institutions, history, identity, justice, and faith.
These conversations have raised important questions. What, precisely, is Critical Race Theory? Why has it caused tensions between some Christians? And how might people of faith work together to address racism in America and move toward a more just, equitable, and inclusive democracy?
Join us for a panel discussion that will explore these important civic issues through the lens of practical theology, in a thoughtful atmosphere of mutual respect.
Presented by the Ansari Institute for Global Engagement with Religion and co-sponsored by the Notre Dame Initiative on Race and Resilience and Indiana University South Bend's Civil Rights Heritage Center.
