Cross-Racial Solidarity

Insights from and Challenges to Catholic Social Thought

2010 Santa Clara Lecture

November 11, 2010 | 7:30-9:00 PM
Williman Room, Benson Memorial Center 

Solidarity is a key concept in Catholic social ethics.  Yet the demands of this summons have yet to be applied in a sustained way to the racial tensions and divisions that mark U.S. life.  What does authentic solidarity between estranged racial groups require?  How does such cross-racial solidarity expand the boundaries of Catholic social reflection?  In the 2010-2011 Santa Clara Lecture, Professor Bryan Massingale will seek to address these questions and reflect on the the kind of virtues and spirituality needed for cross-racial solidarity today.
