Rev. Dr. Cooper-White is an Episcopal priest and clinical psychologist and retired Christine Brooks Johnson Professor of Psychology and Religion at Union Theological Seminary. A prolific author, Dr. Cooper-White will speak on the topic of her recent book, "The Psychology of White Christian Nationalism: Why People are Drawn In and How to Talk Across the Divide." Dr. Cooper-White's book will be available for purchase and signing following the event.

Our nation continues to combat racial inequality in 2024, 60 years after the passage of the landmark 1964 Civil Rights Act. Saint Mark's Episcopal Church in Palo Alto invites the wider community to a speaker series, “Community, Faith, and Racial Justice,” that explores the role of Christianity, including the current white Christian Nationalist movement, in this injustice and seeks to define a path toward racial justice, healing, and reconciliation.

Bay Area community members who want to learn more about this critical topic and how they can help enact change locally will benefit from hearing the experiences, perspectives, and ideas of the renowned authors featured in this series.
