The Racial Divide in the United States
The Most Rev. Edward Braxton (Bishop of Belleville, IL) will come to Loyola to speak about the racial divide in the United States today. In the wake of the events surrounding the deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, Tamir Rice in Cleveland, Ohio, Eric Garner in Staten Island, New York, among others, Bishop Braxton offers his own reflection on the state of the racial divide in the United States today.
In addition to Bishop Braxton, Dr. Jon Nilson (Department of Theology) and Dr. Timone Davis (Institute of Pastoral Studies) will be offering responses to the Bishop's reflections, which will then be followed by some open time for Q&A with the speakers.
