Myths America Lives By with Richard T. Hughes, Phd, and The Rev. Dr. Thee Smith
February 1, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
White supremacy has been defined as the belief, theory, or doctrine that white people are inherently superior to people from all other racial and ethnic groups, and are therefore rightfully the dominant group in any society. As people of faith, we challenge this belief because it runs counter to Jesus’ life and message.
This scintillating and thought-provoking dialogue is derived from Myths America Lives By: White Supremacy and the Stories that Give Us Meaning, by Richard T. Hughes, PhD, scholar-in-residence in the College of Bible and Ministry at Lipscomb University. Dr. Hughes will be joined by The Rev. Dr. Thee Smith, a member of the clergy at Cathedral of St. Philip in Atlanta. The two will discuss this well-researched and documented examination of white supremacy, the synergistic relationships of white supremacy with five myths that have been central to the evolution of the American psyche, and the implications for our culture and lives today.
