The Context of White Supremacy welcomes Rev. Jennifer Harvey. A professor of religion at Drake University in Iowa, Rev. Harvey’s research interests “focus on encounters of religion and ethics with race, gender, activism, politics, spirituality, justice, and any other aspect of social life in which religiosity decides to ‘show up.’ Professor Harvey came to Gus’ attention following her New York Times article, Are We Raising Racists? Rev. Harvey writes, “When we don’t talk honestly with White children about Racism, they become more likely to disbelieve or discount their peers when they report experiencing racism.” Much of Professor Harvey’s work seems predicated on the idea that at least some White Supremacists can be rehabilitated. We’ll ask her to provide evidence that some population of Whites are willing to stop mistreating non-white people. She presents similar ideas in her other writing, including her 2007 publication, Whiteness and Morality: Pursuing Racial Justice through Reparations and Sovereignty. We’ll ask if Rev. Harvey can share ways that she has practiced Racism and what she does – besides writing – to end global White Terrorism.
