Jan. 3, 2021: “What the Early History of Bethlehem Teaches Us about Race”
- Rabbi Sholomo Levy, Professor of History at Northampton Community College
- The Rev. Dr. Frank Crouch, Professor of New Testament, Moravian Theological Seminary
This opening session will offer a framework for understanding some of the ways race has shaped individual and communal life in the US, from the beginning until today. We will use the 18th century history of Moravians in Bethlehem and the early missions as a lens through which we can see the way our theology and good intentions can bring life and peace to others but also lead us astray.
