Black Liberation Through the Marketplace

Event start date

June 16, 2022

Come join The Institute on Religion and Democracy at 6:30 PM on June 16, as coauthors Marcus Witcher and Rachel Ferguson discuss their new book, Black Liberation Through the Marketplace: Hope, Heartbreak, and the Promise of America, and how the goal of racial justice in America has been stymied by both the political right, who have downplayed the severity of historical injustices committed against black Americans, and the political left, whose paternalistic solutions have often been steeped in racism themselves. Instead, the authors propose an alternative route: the principles of classical liberalism and their championing of individual liberties and a constitutional order. In embracing these principles, the authors argue, America stands the best chance of achieving liberty and justice for all, including black Americans.

The event will be preceded by a reception beforehand at 6:00 PM, during which food and opportunities to socialize will be made available. All attendees are encouraged to bring guests.
