Public discourse about religious freedom has been white too long.

The BJC Center for Faith, Justice and Reconciliation offers a variety of educational programs for students, congregations, community leaders, faith leaders and public officials that expand and deepen our understanding of religious freedom with a broader justice lens. 

The Center is led by Dr. Sabrina E. Dent, a leading scholar and advocate at the intersection of faith freedom for all and racial justice. It also is the home of BJC’s Project on Race and Religious Freedom and the BJC Fellows Program. Scroll down to learn more about the Center’s programs and ongoing projects. You can also visit BJC’s education page for other programs.

“The growth in the number of African Americans claiming to hold to no particular religious orientation has grown during the 21st century.  And this demographic shift raises important questions needing our attention: How does this population of nones impact the Black Church? What assumptions concerning Black Christianity are challenged by the growth in the number of Black nones?  Now is the time for explicit and public attention to these questions.”
