Book Discussion: The Color of Christ

Tuesday, March 12, 2013 at 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Location: Fireside Room, Driscoll Student Center North

Book Title: The Color of Christ: The Son of God and the Saga of Race in America by Edward Blum & Paul Harvey (UNC Press, 2012)

How is it that in America the image of Jesus Christ has been used both to justify the atrocities of white supremacy and to inspire the righteousness of civil rights crusades? In The Color of Christ, Edward J. Blum and Paul Harvey weave a tapestry of American dreams and visions–from witch hunts to web pages, Harlem to Hollywood, slave cabins to South Park, Mormon revelations to Indian reservations–to show how Americans remade the Son of God visually time and again into a sacred symbol of their greatest aspirations, deepest terrors, and mightiest strivings for racial power and justice. Professor Arthur Jones (The Women’s College) will co-facilitate.
