In honor of Black History Month, join us for a conversation with author and leading Christian activist Lisa Sharon Harper about the movement for reparations and her new book, Fortune, presented by the Racial Justice Institute at Christians for Social Action.
Drawing on her lifelong journey to know her family’s history, Harper recovers the beauty of her heritage, exposes the brokenness that race has wrought in America, and casts a vision for collective repair.
Fortune helps readers understand how America was built upon systems and structures in ways that blessed some and cursed others, allowing Americans of European descent to benefit from the colonization, genocide, enslavement, rape, and exploitation of people of color. As Harper lights a path through national and religious history, she clarifies exactly how and when the world broke and shows the way to redemption for us all.
This event is free and open to all. However, any donations will go to support the programs of CSA’s Racial Justice Institute. Register below so we can send you the link via email.
