In the final dark days of 2020, six presidents of Southern Baptist Seminaries issued publicly condemned Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality; forbidding the subjects from being taught at their institutions. Join host Lisa Sharon Harper on Freedom Road with special guests: Dr. Ange-Marie Hancock Alfaro (Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality scholar), Marlena Graves (evangelical scholar and activist), Dr. Drew Hart (professor of Theology, Race and Justice), Dr. Dennis Edwards (Pastor and New Testament scholar), Dr. Chris Williamson (Pastor of a multi-racial church in Nashville, TN and author). Dive deep, lean in and listen as these evangelical scholars and leaders of color set the record straight.

Great topic and thanks for all the scholarship on the issue. Doesn’t however being forced to risk the argument entangled with the religionists of the masters (many of their founders themselves peddlers in flesh) compromise progress to a certain material extent? How do we turn our attention to ourselves and our healing vs answer specious charges from absolute villains?
What an informative, inspirational, and motivating podcast! Thank you for all the eloquent, Christ-like, and scripturally grounded reasoning against this horrible, ignorant statement put forth by these 6 white men in positions of power in the SBC. Keep educating us!
