Race and the History of the Episcopal Church, Part I - Session 3 of 3

Series: The MICAH Project: Race and the History of the Episcopal Church

Woody Register
January 24, 2021
On Sunday, January 24, Woody Register led this discussion, putting the University of the South (Sewanee), the land and community in which it is embedded, and the Episcopal Church that nurtured and sustained it over generations “back in time” by exploring its roots in pro-slavery Christianity and its development as a promoter of Jim Crow and the “Lost Cause.” In doing so, we considered the role of the Roberson Project on Slavery, Race, and Reconciliation in revising the story we tell about this University and its mission in the past, present, and future.
Woody Register is the Francis S. Houghteling Professor of American History and director of the Roberson Project at the University of the South.
