Slavery, Religion, and American Freedom

The online educational series "Engaging Racism: Conversations for Change" presents a talk by Amanda Porterfield, Ph.D., historian of American religion with interests in the place of religion in business, law, politics and modern art. She is currently Professor Emerita at Florida State University.

Before the lecture, please review Dr. Porterfield’s recommended readings on the History of American Slavery.

Each speaker in the series will present a talk for about one hour followed by a live Q&A session. The following Tuesday, participants will engage in a discussion of the topics presented the week before. The post-lecture discussion on Dr. Porterfield’s talk will be held on Tuesday, October 6 at 7:30pm.

The series is sponsored by the Tallahassee Chan Center and the Social Justice and Innovation Lab at the Askew School of Public Administration and Policy.

An optional guided meditation will be led by Chan Center founder and teacher Guo Gu at 7:00 pm prior to the talk.
