Professor Morel, author of Lincoln’s Sacred Effort: Defining Religion’s Role in American Self-Government, will speak on how Nikole Hannah-Jones' 1619 Project was misguided, and should have enabled Americans to see each other better or more clearly as fellow human beings and citizens, especially when considering the progress we have made to secure civil and political rights. Continued progress will depend on seeing one another better, which will entail a different way of understanding the role that race has played in America’s political development.
