Deliver Us From Hatred: Does Religion in America Have a Race Problem?

Tuesday, February 21, 2017 | 6 p.m.
McNally Ampitheater | Fordham University | Lincoln Center Campus | 140 W. 62nd St. | New York City

In what ways is religion complicit in America's race problem? And how can faith communities help heal racial tensions and lead the way forward?
