Racism and Christianity
An honest conversation interacting with the “battle of our generation”
Daniel Hill and Shumeca Picket, some of the nation’s top thinkers on racial inequality, will host an honest conversation interacting with the ‘battle of our generation.’ As they cover the topics of white supremacy, racial diversity, and how the church in America historically has and is still feeding into these issues, they will challenge the dominant ideology and offer insight into where we should go from here.
Daniel Hill is a pastor of River City Community Church in the Humboldt Park Neighborhood on Chicago’s West Side. He is also author of White Awake: An Honest Look at What It Means to Be White, a compelling and timely look at what it means to be white, while also empowering readers to be an agent of reconciliation in our increasingly diverse and divided world. Today he is an active participant in addressing and confronting racial and systemic injustices.
Shumeca Pickett is the founder of Alfred Dewitt Ard, a research and consulting firm that brings together a cross-section of people and organizations from the greater Chicago area to create just and sustainable enterprises, systems, and neighborhoods. As a graduate of Chicago State University with an MBA from Indiana Wesleyan, Shumeca is one of many working on the frontlines for racial equity in Chicago.
