White Supremacy, Power, and the Role of Interfaith: An Evening with Beverly Mitchell

Are anti-black racism and anti-Semitism related in the contemporary U.S. context? If so, what might this relationship tell us about whiteness and religion? Please join us for the Institute of Islamic, Christian, and Jewish Studies' (ICJS) annual Manekin-Clarke Lecture where Professor Mitchell will draw upon her previous work to answer some of the unsettling political and theological questions of our times. She will explore how her work can open myriad possibilities for interreligious engagement, while thinking through the numerous twenty-first century challenges facing minorities in the wake of an emboldened sense of white supremacy, nativism, jingoism, and xenophobic nationalism.

The lecture is free, but please register.
