Religion and Race: The Future of Anti-Racism and the Catholic Church

2020-10-13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Georgetown’s Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life and the Archdiocese of Washington’s DCCatholic Young Adult Ministry Theology on Tap program will co-host a panel of young Black Catholic leaders to discuss the history with racism within the U.S. Catholic Church, how racial injustice exists in our communities today, the role of white privilege, and practical ways that Church leaders and young Catholics can work towards a more anti-racist and racially just Church.

The panelists include Ogechi Akalegbere, the host, executive editor, and content creator for the podcast Tell Me, If You Can; Fr. Robert Boxie, the chaplain at Howard University and the priest-in-residence at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Washington, DC; Gerald Smith, Jr., the principal at St. Thomas More Catholic Academy in Washington, DC; and Shannen Dee Williams, the Albert Lepage Assistant Professor of History at Villanova University.
