The Fire this Time: Racism and American Christianity

October 6, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Anthea Butler MHP Show

The history of Christianity in America has been equated with capitalism, intellectual thought, and
nation building, but the real core of American Christianity is racism, and the attempts to counteract or reinforce racial stereotypes in order to promote an Americanized Jesus.

I will talk will engage these historical problems associated with whiteness, Americanism, and a promotion of a meek and lowly Jesus archetype designed to stymie efforts towards racial justice and equality in America.

The lecture is open to the public and free of charge.
