Racial minorities face erasure through racist policies that target them. Politics run on a single track- a greed that excludes government for and by the people. Privilege gives rise to an uneven distribution of power, which distorts the meaning of justice for many. Should we just sit idly by singing kum bah yah? Or, should we be on the frontlines speaking truth to power? Truth is on trial. Truth deserves credible witnesses to save it from the arsenal of deceit disseminating from all manner of racist governance. Who shall we send? Who will go? This moment calls for bold witnesses. Join us May 20th-24th at Vanderbilt University Divinity School as we wrestle with the prophetic response to racist governance.
Join Faith Matters Network, Vanderbilt Divinity School Public Theology and Racial Justice Collaborative, and Vanderbilt Divinity School on November 2, 4-6pm, in the Vanderbilt Divinity Reading Room for, "Tired and Torn: Mending Ourselves, Mending Our Children."
Join the Public Theology and Racial Justice Collaborative, or as we fondly call it: The Collaborative, for our official launch. More details will follow, but for now, save the date.
