    Critical Race Theory: Friend, Foe or Opportunity?
    Virtual Seminar on Saturdays:  Oct. 30, Nov. 6, Nov. 13
    10:00-12:00 noon

    Sponsored by The Institute for Justice Formation at the John Leland Center, the Mid-Atlantic Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, and the Washington Theological Consortium

    Two-session left–you can still come!   Join us for this three-session seminar to explore the foundations, the debates and the implications of Critical Race Theory (CRT): a framework from legal scholarship that analyzes the structural nature of racism in the U.S. Where does CRT come from? Is CRT a danger to Christian beliefs or does it help people of faith to fight racism? Are there positive, practical implications of CRT for the Church and its witness to the world?

    We will be led by a team of experienced scholars, pastors, and educators who have worked with CRT in their own ministries.

    • Dr. Hank Allen is a sociologist who studies CRT and explores it as a resource for Christian communities.
    • Dr. Jeff Willetts is a former dean of two theological schools, a scholar, and senior pastor of Parkwood Baptist Church who believes the Church can embrace all people.
    • Dr. Denise Janssen is a professor of Christian education at the Samuel Dewitt Proctor School of Theology who uses multiple frameworks to shape teaching that is inclusive and empowerment.
    • Dr. Robert Wallace is senior pastor of McLean Baptist Church who finds Scripture to be a liberating message for all people.
