+ J. Kameron Carter, associate professor of theology, English, and African American Studies at Duke Divinity School, lectures on the way claiming a “post-racial” society can often support oppressive social structures, critiques Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s theological anthropology, and explores a new language to discuss the complexities of whiteness, theology, and post-racial politics.
Carter is introduced by Jeanelle Austin, director of operations for the Pannell Center, and Tommy Givens, assistant professor of New Testament studies, who was also a student of Carter’s at Duke Divinity School. Note: references to Carter’s “previous lecture” refer to his sermon during Fuller’s All-Seminary Chapel, and we regret that we are unable to publish the sermon due to corruption in the audio file.
The 2017 Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration by the Pannell Center for African American Church Studies provides a forum for distinguished African American scholars and clergy to enrich the lives and ministries of Fuller Theological Seminary students, alumni, and the Southern California community with the nation’s best examples of African American scholarship and preaching.
