Topical - Resources for Racial Reconciliation and Justice: Whiteness

Books, articles & more in support of communities talking about race.


"In church, culture, and the academy, we are increasingly aware that racial justice and reconciliation requires a fearless look at how whiteness has been constructed as a category of power. To become "white" was to be endowed with cultural, economic, and political privilege. The price for entrance was the relinquishment (whitewashing) of diverse ethnic identities. Racial justice and reconciliation is not simply a matter of liberating and empowering persons of color but also revealing and challenging the category of whiteness.This subject guide provides resources that address these topics from theological, philosophical, and political perspectives."

- Dr. Scott Bader-Saye, Academic Dean and Helen and Everett H. Jones Professor of Christian Ethics and Moral Theology
