I will be at Pine Valley Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), 5620 East 21st Street North, Wichita, from 3:00 to 5:00 PM on Saturday, December 3, 2016. Join us for a discussion of my book, Native Americans, the Mainline Church, and the Quest for Interracial Justice. I will present main themes of the book followed by a time for questions and answers and discussion. Signed copies of the book will be available for purchase. Refreshments are being provided by members of Pine Valley Christian Church. The church is located between Oliver and Woodlawn.
In this time of racial unrest and the courageous action of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to protect their access to clean water and their treaty rights, it is imperative that we analyze the Christian roots of anti-Indianism and find ways to work together to build a more just and peaceful society in which interracial justice is normative.
Many Protestant denominations have renounced their historic mission to "civilize and Christianize" Native Americans. Several denominations have repudiated the doctrine of discovery. Now is the time to chart new path. Please join us for this important conversation.
