The Parable of the Good Supremacist

Sunday, 04.7.2019
Speaker: 
Travis Jones
In this sermon, recovering theologian Travis Jones will explore the parallels of White Supremacy in the parable of the Good Samaritan, paying particular attention to the false-promises of the "goodness" of white supremacy that blind us to seeing the humanity of our racial others as well as the liberating promise of being better anti-racists. Because as Angela Davis says, “in a racist society it is not enough to be non-racists; we must be anti-racists.” Sociologist Travis Jones is a southern white working-class male educator who serves as the Principal Strategist for Race, Religion, & Culture at the Winters Group, a global diversity and inclusion consulting firm based in Charlotte, NC.

Can Unitarian Universalism’s work for justice feed the hunger of 21st century seekers? Rev. Lisa Schwartz draws on ancient wisdom to reflect on these issues.
