A 15-Minute History of Race and the Church

I had the opportunity to attend the annual meeting of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship and present a brief history of racism and the American church.

The video below is only about 15 minutes long, and I walk through three major phases of racist history in the U.S.–slavery, segregation, and racialization. In each era, I offer examples of how Christians compromised with racism instead of confronting it.

Of course, this presentation only introduces a much more extensive topic. I hope you’ll consider reading The Color of Compromise: The Truth about the American Church’s Complicity in Racism. Get your copy HERE or wherever books are sold.
