As America reckons with the legacies of slavery and Jim Crow, Robert P. Jones--author and founder of the Public Religion Research Institute--argues we cannot overlook the role Christianity played in perpetuating prejudice and ignoring injustice.

Jones grew up in Mississippi, attended church five days a week, studied divinity at a Baptist seminary, and yet he says he can't remember ever hearing a sermon on civil rights or racial justice. His latest book is, “White Too Long: The Legacy of White Supremacy in American Christianity”. Original air date: July 30, 2020.
