Jemar Tisby is a historian, author, and speaker who engages the Christian church in racial equity work. This event will be a time to hear from Jemar about the history of race, criminal justice and the church's complicity. Jemar will challenge the church's potential to dismantle racism, carceral punishment and state violence, including a direct confrontation of the American death penalty system. This interactive, eclectic event will include spoken word, music, artwork from a person on death row and intense intellectual value. The night is designed for Christians to watch the event with other Christians (either physically or virtually), as there will be ways to engage, serve and act on national, state, and local issues.
