Episode 9: Jeannine Hill Fletcher, The Sin of White Supremacy

April 5, 2018

We sit down with Jeannine Hill Fletcher, professor at Fordham University, a theologian and author of The Sin of White Supremacy (Orbis Books).

Get ready as we take a deep dive into the inner section of theology and issues of diversity as it relates to gender, race and religion.

We’ll be discussing how Jeannine was able to step back from her suburban, predominantly white catholic environment and upbringing to see the work that still needs to be done.

As you listen to this episode, we want you to think about how we as christians and catholics can take a look at the lense we use to think through these things for change. We can’t change history, but how are we called to transform and change these perceptions and reality.
