A Desperate Cry for Justice
February 14 @ 2:00 pm EST
Seeking a truly human path to racial justice with Anika Prather, professor, Howard University, Eugene Rivers, Pentecostal minister, and Jacqueline Rivers, director of the Seymour Institute for Black Church and Policy Studies, moderated by Jonathan Liedl, journalist
Many people in the US today are seeking ways to heal the wounds of racism and move forward. However, this requires traveling a narrow road between two cliffs. On the one side, there is the danger of denying or ignoring both the past and present racial injustice in our country. On the other side, there is the temptation of reducing all our human experience to a matter of power, which inevitably perpetuates violence. Speakers will share their experience of traveling this narrow road, and also of opening the way for others.
