Author Speaks on Racism and White Supremacy
Jeannine Hill Fletcher, Professor of Theology at Fordham University in the Bronx, New York, leads an interactive workshop, “Repenting of the Sin of White Supremacy,” from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, February 29, 2020, at Weber Retreat and Conference Center.
The workshop explores the history of racism and the ideology of White Supremacy as it is manifested in legislation, personal encounter, and even faith communities. Participants have the opportunity to situate their personal experiences within the national and institutional histories of racial injustice and to work together to envision and enact faith-based transformation.
Jeannine is a constructive theologian whose research is at the intersection of Christian systematic theology and issues of diversity. Her latest book is The Sin of White Supremacy: Christianity, Racism, and Religious Diversity in America.
