St. John's Racial Justice Speaker Series
Sunday, April 18, 2021, 6:00 PM
The racial justice committee at St. John's Episcopal Church in Tower Grove is continuing its monthly speaker series on Sunday, April 18 at 6 p.m. with a presentation by Dr. James M. Thomas (JT), associate professor of sociology at the University of Mississippi.
Dr. Thomas will address the role housing plays in advancing economic and racial justice. In this talk, Dr. Thomas will show how and why housing ought to be at the forefront of movements for progressive social change.
For background, Dr. Thomas is the author or co-author of four book-length monographs, and more than 20 peer-reviewed journal articles, book chapters, and invited essays on the causes and consequences of race and racism in America, and abroad. His scholarship is wide-ranging in its coverage: from comparative and historical analyses of the medicalization of racism in Western Europe and in the United States; to theorizing the complex interplay between race, citizenship, and affect along the US-Mexico border; to critical investigations of diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives on college campuses. His newest book-length project, The Souls of Jews, centers the role of late 19th-century German antisemitism in the development of W.E.B. Du Bois’s intellectual project.
All are invited to be a part of this conversation.
