On April 12, 2019, Sagamore scholar Rev. James White joined the Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in hosting a talk entitled “The Lingering Effects of Lynching on your Ministry: An Untold Story.” This talk explores the ongoing effects that lynching, or sin of any sort, has on the proclamation of the gospel. Rev. White reminds us that “whenever [we] use words like ‘lynching’… we often miss that what happens in history is very much today.”
Listen as a panel of scholars discuss how the history and trauma of lynching have given rise to present-day injustices suffered by the African-American community; and how recognizing these lingering effects of lynching can help foster a deeper sense of community and mend the hindrances they have on the proclamation of the gospel.
