Muslim and Christian Responses to White Supremacy and Xenophobia

Hartford Seminary’s Macdonald Center for the Study of Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations welcomes members of the Building Bridges Seminar (arguably the world’s longest-running international dialogue of Christian and Muslim scholar-practitioners) for an examination of root causes of and religious resources for addressing White Supremacy and Xenophobia. Drawing upon Macdonald Center affiliate Lucinda Mosher’s edited volume A World of Inequalities: Christian and Muslim Perspectives (Georgetown University Press 2021), the panel will address the current social realities of Race and Xenophobia which have been rarely acknowledged by a white dominant Christian culture.

Join us for this 90-minute webinar session. NOTE: This event will be live-captioned for the deaf and hard-of-hearing community.
