Featuring author Greg Garrett
As we approach the 2017 Academy Awards, last year's #oscarssowhite controversy continues to resonate because movies have a long history of ignoring or imperfectly representing people of color. In this way, they are emblematic of the larger culture. Join us for an evening of conversation about film, race, and faith with Dr. Greg Garrett, "one of America's leading voices on religion and culture" (BBC Radio). Greg is currently at work on a book on race and film, and on a race and film initiative with the National Cathedral. He is the author of over twenty books (including critically-acclaimed works on film, popular culture, religion, and politics), Professor of English at Baylor University, and a licensed lay preacher in the Episcopal Church.
We will meet in the church Parlor.
