Hart is Assistant Professor of Theology at Messiah College and recently completed doctoral studies in theology and ethics at Lutheran Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, Pa. In this provocative book, theologian and blogger Drew G. I. Hart places police brutality, mass incarceration, anti-black stereotypes, poverty, and everyday acts of racism within the larger framework of white supremacy. Leading readers toward Jesus, Hart offers concrete practices for churches that seek solidarity with the oppressed and are committed to racial justice.
PLEASE NOTE: There are two advance opportunities for discussion of the Hart book. THURSDAY, AUGUST 24, 7:30pm and AUGUST 26, 10:00 AM, AT ST. JOHN’S EPISCOPAL CHURCH, WEST CHESTNUT ST. LANCASTER.
