Response | Lisseth Rojas-Flores

+ Lisseth Rojas-Flores, associate professor of marriage and family therapy at Fuller, responds to Elizabeth Conde-Frazier’s lecture and discusses how dominant cultures imbue privilege within its participants and exert racism through existing systems.

The Fuller Missiology Lectures is an annual conference held by the School of Intercultural Studies. Its 2017 theme, “Race, Theology, and Mission,” considered the issue of race through a multicultural lens. Discussions aimed to develop historical, theological, interdisciplinary, and missiological approaches to race that can interrogate conventional thinking about ethnoracialism, colorism, and hierarchicalism (in its various manifestations across gender, economic, and class lines), even while revitalizing Christian witness and practices of racial justice, reconciliation, and peace in the present time.
