Join Robert P. Jones, author of White Too Long: The Legacy of White Supremacy in American Christianity, as he discusses with author Jennifer Harvey why Christianity’s role in white supremacy cannot be overlooked any longer.

As the CEO and Founder of Public Religion Research Institute, Jones takes the public opinion surveys researched there to deliver what Publishers Weekly called, “a refreshing blend of historical accounting, soul searching reflection, and analysis.” In his new Amplify Originals series based on the book, he shows how deeply racist attitudes have become embedded in the identity of white Christianity.

In this discussion with Harvey, who authored the New York Times bestselling Raising White Kids: Bringing Up Children in a Racially Unjust America, they will discuss why and how Christians must confront these truths of our history and present, so that we might salvage our faith and our futures. This is an essential conversation for church leaders struggling with how to address equality in their congregations and work toward repairing our past.
