Event description
Discussion about relationship between U.S. Christianity and White Supremacy, as raised in Robert P. Jones' new book, "White Too Long."

About this Event

Join ICJS Executive Director Heather Miller Rubens in a discussion with Robert P. Jones around topics raised in his newest book, "White Too Long: The Legacy of White Supremacy in American Christianity." (Now available to order.)

As Jones argues in the book, confronting unsettling truths around Christianity’s role as a cornerstone of white supremacy in the United States—truths that have interreligious implications—is the only way to salvage the integrity of faith and religious identities. The moderated discussion will look not only to accepting responsibility for the past, but exploring the work toward repair required in the present.

Jones delivered ICJS' 2019 Manekin-Clark lecture (video below).
