Faith In Action: A Dialogue on Race, Politics, and Faith-Based Communities in America
Thursday, 8:00 p.m., Vollum lecture hall
OFCS (Reed's Christian Group) and The Veritas Forum present a panel on race, politics, and faith-based communities in America with guest speaker Andra Gillespie, associate professor of political science at Emory University. Gillespie will be sharing on the intersection of her research focus in African American politics and her personal experience as a Black Christian; among these, how different communities respond to acts of violence and forgiveness. A Reed student panel will respond with perspectives from diverse religious, ethnic, and political backgrounds, followed by an interactive audience Q&A. The panel will be moderated by Margot Minardi, associate professor of history at Reed College.
The Reed student panel will include:
Dean Young '16
Alex Gomez Lacayo '18
Makana Castillo-Martin '18
Yaseen Hashmi '19
The Reed Veritas Forum 2016 is sponsored by the Reed College Multicultural Resource Center, Oh For Christ's Sake, and the Reed College Student Senate.
