Martin luther malcolm x

Martin Luther King, Jr. termed it "appalling that the most segregated hour of Christian America is eleven o'clock on Sunday morning." Religion and race have both brought diverse Americans together and divided them in bitter ways. This course explores the intersection of these two fundamental contributors to American culture and identity. The course will examine, among other things, the issues of race, conquest, and Indian missions; debates over the morality of slavery; the construction of Mormons as a racial "other" in the nineteenth-century; and the growing significance of Latino Christianity in the contemporary United States.
