Dialogues on Race & Religion: Acting Creatively in the Face of Crisis

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2017
7 PM – 9 PM, SAINT JAMES

Bayard Rustin, best-known as the primary organizer of the 1963 March on Washington, was among the greatest American religious and democratic thinkers of the twentieth century. Dr. Sarah Azaransky considers Rustin’s Quaker call for us “to act creatively” in the face of political and moral crises. This interactive session will explore how noncooperation may be an effective moral and political tactic in our own era.

Dr. Azaransky teaches social ethics at Union Theological Seminary. She is author of This Worldwide Struggle: Religion and the International Roots of the Civil Rights Movement and editor of Religion and Politics in America’s Borderlands.
