Abraham’s Whiteboard: Faith and Faiths from the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade
Thursday, June 3
6:30 PM – 8:00 PM CDT
Zoom (Registration required)
Over the course of about 400 years, the harrowing injustice of the slave trade brought millions of people from Africa to the Americas against their will. Despite taking away so much of their freedom, slavery could not extinguish the religious expression of enslaved Black communities. In this session, we will explore the impact that the trans-Atlantic slave trade had on the development of faith in America, focusing particularly on Islam and Christianity.
Abraham’s Whiteboard is a monthly educational class led by Education Director, Jeremy Fricke, on a wide variety of religious topics, from world religions like Hinduism and Buddhism to special topics like how definitions of religion impact our own religious identities. All Abraham’s Whiteboard sessions are open to all people regardless of background, but will connect the content to Judaism, Christianity, and/or Islam.
Tri-Faith Initiative events are recorded and archived on our YouTube Channel.
