People have been thinking a lot about race lately and we’ve also been thinking about the role of religion in elections. What we haven’t been doing is examining what happens when the two intersect. On the next episode of Why? we are going to do just this, examining specifically the role of the church in the lives, politics, and self-image of the African-American community (and everyone else).

J. Kameron Carter is Associate Professor of Systematic Theology and Black Church Studies at Duke University. He works in black studies (African American and African Diaspora studies), using theological and religious studies concepts, critical theory, and increasingly poetry in doing so. His Race: A Theological Account appeared in 2008 (New York: Oxford UP). He is the editor of Religion and the Future of Blackness (a special issue of South Atlantic Quarterly, 2013).

Please donate to Why? Radio***


Why? Radio needs your help more than ever; we have to be self-sustaining. Why? Radio has to raise our own money and pay our own bills; we get no money from the University of North Dakota. Not surprisingly, there aren¹t a lot of grants for philosophy out there and there are even fewer for public philosophy. We rely almost entirely on our listeners. So, we are asking you to please donate. Your contribution is tax deductible, and because Why? Radio is so inexpensive to produce (every guest volunteers his or her time), your donation goes a long way. A very long way.

We would also like to offer you an incentive.

For gifts of $25 or more, donors will receive the world jazz CD Lua e Sol from Mark Weinstein (while supplies last). This is the album that contains all of the wonderful music that makes up the show¹s soundtrack.

For gifts of $100 or more, donors will receive a handful of his CDs, remarkable music from Brazil, Cuba, and some straight-ahead jazz. You can visit Mark¹s website and listen to his other music at http://jazzfluteweinstein.com/ 

Donations of $250 or more will get the CD¹s and you¹ll be named on the air as an episode¹s sponsor. You¹ll be a role-model for all of our listeners.

So please visit our website to donate: http://www.philosophyinpubliclife.org/Donate.aspx

Because really, if you won¹t support philosophy, who will?

Thank you for your support and thank you for listening to Why? Radio.
