Faith, Race, and Politics

In a polarized nation, faith, race, and politics can be divisive topics on their own. Bringing them together can be explosive. This timely conversation included an African-American political leader trying to connect biblical values and U.S. politics; a white evangelical leader insisting that “Who is my neighbor?” is the central question of the 2020 presidential campaign; a Latino bishop serving a Catholic diocese along the U.S.-Mexico border; and a respected journalist who has spent years covering the ways faith and race intersect in American politics and culture.

This dialogue was a continuation of the Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life’s series on Faith and the Faithful in U.S. Politics.

This public dialogue was co-sponsored by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs, the Institute of Politics and Public Service, and the Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life.
