Event description

Description

The Center for Religion and Culture invites students, faculty, and staff to a lunchtime discussion on Stranger in the Village: Safe Space at St. Edward’s University after Charlottesville.

The events of August 2017 at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA were shocking in their violence and expressed hatred and racism.

How do we make sense of this event? What meaning does it hold for our campus?

By reflecting on James Baldwin’s 1955 essay, “Strangers in the Village”, and in light of the HBO Documentary, Race and Terror, we will explore these issues.
