Mennonites and Race
A Lecture on Mennonites and Race: On May 10 at 7pm the Racial Justice Task Force invites you to a lecture from Caleb Schrock-Hurst on his Master’s Thesis Mennonites, Race, and Reconstruction: A Survey of Racial Attitudes in ‘The Herald of Truth,’ 1864-1897. This era saw Mennonites fail to build on some successful actions and attitudes in favor of racial justice in the Civil War Era, instead moving towards passive attitudes in favor of segregation and racialized exploitation. Understanding this era informs our understanding of ourselves and how we can pursue God’s racially just kingdom as Christians today. Caleb’s presentation should last about an hour and will include time for questions. Register for the zoom event here.
