The Creation of Race in the US and its Implications for Christians: Part 2

Contrary to most people’s assumptions, race does not exist as a clearly definable biological reality. Yet “race” as a concept functions in powerful ways to shape our attitudes and actions. Doug Foster sketches the history of the creation of the concept of race in American history, asking participants to explore implications of this story for Christian action. Part one of this series can be found here.

We believe that learning is a lifelong process and that those of us who teach make a commitment to continue our learning throughout our lives. The Adams Center exists to promote the lifelong learning of Abilene Christian University’s faculty as they strive to integrate their faith and their discipline.
