Good Friday Lecture & Discussion- White Supremacy & Black Liberation- One faith and two experiences
Come hear and discuss the reorganized lecture that Rev. Derek recently delivered to several colleges during Black History month comparing the experiences of white and black christians in America. White Supremacists used their Christian faith to support their efforts; Black Christians used their Christian faith to survive the terror of White Supremacy. One faith; two experiences.
Good Friday (The Friday before Easter) was the darkest hour of Jesus' life and ministry. Jesus' death by crucifixion on the cross is the ultimate representation of suffering, public humiliation, shame, and violence. The cross is the symbol of Christian suffering. Join Rev. Derek this Good Friday for a powerful and though-provoking discussion on the paradox of Christian oppression, suffering, and survival through the very different experiences of White and Black American Christians.
In America's current social and political climate, it is important that those of us seeking to create positive change in our world have an opportunity to have relevant discussions about culture, race, identity, and other social ideas.
