DESCRIPTION: In this course, we will read Acts of the Apostles through the lens of Critical Race Theory, focusing on ancient categories of ethnicity and class. We will evaluate racial “othering” via the Christian Tradition in Acts of the Apostles. With a critical understanding of race, we will imagine church and community practices that engage race and power in public (common) spaces.
