Learn about the roundtable discussion.
Leading scholars in religion and theology address the complex social reality of anti-blackness. Contributors analyze the problems of mass incarceration, police brutality, sexual exploitation, colonial domination, economic oppression, and negative stereotyping as forces that particularly target and harm black bodies, selves, and communities.
Anti-blackness and Christian ethics: a roundtable discussion featuring Kelly Brown Douglas, Ashon Crawley, and Bryan Massingale was held Wednesday, September 14th from 7 to 8:30 pm at Boston College.
Speakers discussed anti-blackness as a devastating social evil of the modern age, which is currently taking on new and unsettling forms. They spoke about ways that Christian ethics can and must combat this problem.
The event included opportunities for the audience to participate in the conversation by raising questions and sharing thoughts as undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, staff, administrators, and members of the wider community were encouraged to attend.
