Uniting Christians to Meet the Needs of Our Community
We come to the academy to be shaped into critical thinkers, independent minds. But we are often unaware of the spiritual and racial formation these models of the “educated man” carry. The theologian Dr. Willie James Jennings untangles our pedagogies which are tied to the image of the white slave-master. Join our book club on After Whiteness to discuss how we can think creatively about alternative educational ideals: pedagogies that choose humility and love over mastery and possession.
The book club will meet every Friday from 2:30-3:15 beginning March 19th, and it will culminate in a Veritas Forum with Willie James Jennings on May 6th.
