This event, sponsored by the Hispanic Center, African American Church Studies Program, and Africana Student Association, was titled “Living with Unjust Legacies: Race, Privilege, and Justice,” and was the beginning of a series of conversations on race and justice at Fuller. The comments from participating professors include a mix of history, scholarship, anecdotes, and personal stories. To preserve the dynamic nature of their stories, we’ve published whole portions of the session transcribed from the recording.
A whirlwind occurs at the intersection of two weather masses of differing temperature and direction that spin into a brief but powerful force. This icon is inspired by a painting by Fuller Seminary President Mark Labberton that hangs in his office, and is meant to evoke both the power of conversation and the turbulence of our times. As ambassador of Fuller, Labberton takes the occasion of his travels to speak with a broad spectrum of leaders on issues at the intersection of theology and culture.
