What are the opportunities for individuals across the U.S. to move matters of racial justice forward when many misunderstand the power dynamics of inherited racial privilege, group silence, wealth accumulation and distribution, and universal complicity? How are non-marginalized faith communities theologically compromised by a lack of critical analysis of vested interest in maintaining their privilege within the American status quo? This salon is an open discussion for leaders from any background who are interested in the intersection of race, economics, and inequality. Participants will engage in substantive discussion about how Western economic principles and culture drive inequality and modern segregation.
