Webinars on Hate Speech and Whiteness

19 to 23 October 2020


WCC Press-Center - Explore Hate Speech and Whiteness

WCC Press-Center - Theological reflections

A series of five webinars in five days convened by the World Council of Churches (WCC) will offer theological reflections on “Hate Speech and Whiteness.” Running from 19-23 October, the webinars are being produced by the WCC’s Theological Study Group of the Pilgrimage of Justice and Peace.

The sessions are:

“White Privilege in COVID-19 and White Supremacy in Mission,”
“Legacy of Slavery, Structural Racism, and Religion,”
“Religion, White Superiority, and Aboriginal Peoples,”
“Legacy of Slavery, Colonialism, and Structural Racism,” and
“Hate Speech based on Caste and Class Discrimination and Religion.”

Speakers, who include international scholars and theologians, will confirm that hate speech and whiteness are two overarching issues for the broader global manifestations of racism today. The webinars also aim to strengthen ecumenical theological reflection, accompaniment and advocacy in the area of racial justice.
