Melissa Harris-Lacewell speaks on Righteous Politics: Race, Religion and the 2008 Election at Auburn’s 2008 Jack and Lewis Rudin Lecture
Prominent sociologist, Princeton University professor, and public intellectual, Harris-Lacewell addresses the intersection of race, religion, and politics during Barack Obama’s run for president. Christian leaders have a lot to gain from Harris-Lacewell’s talk, as it makes plain how many African-American clergypeople responded to the story of the controversy around the Rev. Dr. Jeremiah Wright, prophetic witness and public theology, and ministry. To podcast Harris-Lacewell’s Rudin Lecture, click here.
