The School of Theology and the Roberson Project on Slavery, Race, and Reconciliation invite you to join Bishop Carlye Hughes, Dr. Jody Allen, Dr. Woody Register, and the Rev. Dr. Ben King for a panel discussion.
The protests and demonstrations we see around the world are responding to generations of systemic and unpunished violence against Black people in the United States. Even as many in the Episcopal Church now join these protests, we know that historically the Episcopal Church has participated in slavery, segregation, and abuse of civil rights. Panelists will speak about the origins and continuation of racial injustice in Sewanee, the Church, the nation, and the world, while also highlighting the African Americans who, in the face of such violence, have shaped us for the better.
