We were excited to hold a Just Speak! event again at this year’s national orientation. This is a chance for church and community leaders to encourage, inspire and challenge our incoming Volunteers as they start their year seeking peace with justice.
The first speaker was Rev. Dr. Reggie Williams, Assistant Professor of Christian Ethics at McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago. Dr. Williams dug in to understanding what racism is, and is not, with plenty of time for Q&A at the end. For more from Dr. Williams, check out his recently published book Bonhoeffer’s Black Jesus: Harlem Renaissance Theology and an Ethic of Resistance (Baylor University Press, October 1, 2014).
