The history of the United States could be defined as one of racism. Theologians have called racism America’s original sin. Jesus is in the midst of it. My guest, Dr. Edward J. Blum, co-author of The Color of Christ: The Son of God and the Saga of Race in America, speaks to me about how the “whitening” of Christ in popular imagery symbolized our combustible divisions. Dr. Blum will be in East Tennessee on the following dates to discuss race and religion.
