Join us for an Instagram Live & Facebook Live interview, followed by Q & A, with pastor, activist and author Ben Lindsay talking about his recent book (2019) “We Need to Talk about Race: Understanding the Black Experience in White Majority Churches.”
“From the UK church’s complicity in the transatlantic slave trade to the whitewashing of Christianity throughout history, the church has a lot to answer for when it comes to race relations. Christianity has been dubbed the white man’s religion, and yet the Bible speaks of an impartial God and contains a diverse body of believers. In this book, Ben Lindsay offers eye-opening insights into the black religious experience, challenging the perceived ‘status quo’ in white majority churches”
