A forum on race in American Film

greggarrettbox.jpgFor more than 100 years, American films have carried our most powerful stories about race, prejudice and identity, reflecting both our best hopes and our worst fears. 

On Saturday, Aug. 11, join in a morning of conversation about film, race and faith with Greg Garrett, hailed by BBC Radio as “one of America’s leading voices on religion and culture.” 

Greg is currently at work on a book on race and film for Oxford University Press, and last February he curated a race and film festival at Washington National Cathedral. He is the author of 20 books (including critically acclaimed works on film, popular culture, religion and politics), an award-winning professor of English at Baylor University, and a licensed lay preacher in the Episcopal Church.

The free program begins with breakfast served at 8:30 a.m. and will conclude by noon. Free.
