A one-day symposium which will examine the Catholic Church's role and participation in American slavery. The morning sessions will consist of two panels of academics discussing the historical and theological significance of Catholic race policy and practice (slavery and post-slavery). The afternoon session will feature John Cummings, owner and founder of Whitney Plantation and Museum, and a panel of respondents, who will discuss the Church's attempts to address past church failures. A Q&A session follows. The symposium is open to all members of the Fordham community as well as the public. RSVP required.
