Theological Reflections on the 1619 Project
Judge Wendell Griffen
Dean LeAnn Snow Flesher
In 2019 the New York Times Magazine published a special edition entitled The 1619 Project which "aims to reframe the country's history by placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of Black Americans at the very center of the United States' national narrative." Since then, this project has been turned into a book edited by Nikole Hannah-Jones (originator of the 1619 Project), et. al., that has become accessible to the general public. In this 6 session summer course, Judge Wendell Griffen of the Sixth Judicial Circuit and Pastor of New Millennium Church in Little Rock, Arkansas will team with Dean LeAnn Snow Flesher to provide a theological walk through The 1619 Project.
Class will meet once a week for two hours. Dates and times: 6/21, 6/28, 7/5, 7/12, 7/19, 7/26; 5pm to 7pm PDT.
