Bridging the Racial Divide: Christian Perspectives
Thursday, June 6 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm| $10
This year’s Father Jim Bacik Lecture offers Christian perspectives on bridging the racial divide.
The lecture will examine the challenging issue of racism from various perspectives: the history of our “original sin” and its destructive legacy; the enduring contributions of Dr. Martin Luther King; the U.S. Bishops’ recent pastoral letter on racism, Open Wide Our Hearts; the controversial issue of white privilege; and the Christian vocation to overcome the injustice of institutional and systemic racism.
