Texas and Race

"One of the core values of Seminary of the Southwest is rootedness. Being aware of our context and how that shapes our common life means paying attention to the story of Texas and race. As a seminary the powerful currents of race has shaped our common life, often in unseen ways. As part of being more reflective on how race is a factor in who we are collectively, we have developed this list of resources."

- The Rev. Daniel Joslyn-Siemiatkoski, PhD, Duncalf-Villavaso Professor of Church History
