Dialogues on Race and Religion: Race, Caste and Christianity

MONDAY, AUGUST 21, 2017
7 PM – 8:30 PM

Are race and caste alike? Did they have a bearing on each other's construction? How did 19th century missionary Christianity contribute to and deal with these social constructs? What are the repercussions in the present? Join the Rev. Dr. Joshua Samuel for a talk and discussion in Cathedral House.

Rev. Samuel was ordained in the Church of South India and now serves as a Priest in the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island. He recently received his Ph.D. in Theology and Interreligious Engagement from the Union Theological Seminary, New York.
