Prophets of Zoom at AU: Jemar Tisby, Michelle Higgins, and Seth Wispelwey

Historian Jemar Tisby was scheduled to speak at Ashland University in Peter Slade's class REL340 Religion and the Civil Rights Movement; that was until the Coronavirus cancelled all events and moved all classes online.

Jemar Tisby, author of The Color of Compromise: The Truth about the American Church’s Complicity in Racism, kindly agreed to speak to the class on Zoom.

"It went so well," said Slade, "that it occured to me that there were other people I would love my students to meet and learn from." He invited Rev. Michelle Higgins, the founder of Faith for Justice in St. Louis, and Rev Seth Wispelwey, one of the organizers of Congregate Charlottesville. Both kindly agreed to show up.

Recordings of the classes are available for anyone to watch -- click on the titles to go to the videos (Slade apologizes for his limited Zoom skills):

1. Reconsidering Racial Reconciliation - A Conversation with Jemar Tisby














2. Six Years Since Ferguson - A Conversation with Michelle Higgins














3. . . . since Charlottesville - A Conversation with Seth Wispelwey
