Racism did not take a break during the pandemic. Whether we think of the vigilante-style shooting of Ahmaud Arbery, the rise in attacks on Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders, attacks upon Jewish synagogues, or anti-immigrant attacks–these things alone make it apparent that racism is alive and well. Then there are the deeper and more subtle but no less grievous matters reflected in differentials in infant mortality, household wealth and more.
ESN is hosting a conversation with Chad Brennan and Christina Barland Edmondson on their new book, Faithful Antiracism. The promotional material for the book states:
“In Faithful Antiracism, Christina Barland Edmondson and Chad Brennan take confidence from the truth that Christ has overcome the world, including racism, and offer clear analysis and interventions to challenge and resist its pernicious power. Drawing on brand-new research from the landmark Race, Religion, and Justice Project led by Michael Emerson and others, this book represents the most comprehensive study on Christians and race since Emerson’s own book Divided by Faith (2001). It invites readers to put this data to immediate practical use, applying it to their own specific context.”
Join in for what promises to be both an important and practical conversation. It will be on Thursday, February 10, 2022 at 12 pm ET (11 CT/10 MT/9 PT/7 HT). You may register for this one hour conversation with audience Q & A at: https://tinyurl.com/ESNFaithfulAntiracism.
