Interfaith Scholar Weekend 2021 Webinar Series

Feb 11, 2021

Fresno City College is once again pleased to co-sponsor the 2021 Interfaith Scholar Weekend event. This year due to COVID-19 restrictions, the usual in-person events will not be held and instead will be presented virtually. The Interfaith Scholar Weekend committee invites you to join and register for the six-session webinar series entitled, “Bearing Witness from Fresno’s Mason-Dixon Line.”

The opening panel is slated for Monday, February 15 at 4:00 pm and will include a conversation with three guest scholars—Dr. Nathan Hensley, Associate Professor at Georgetown University, Washington, D.C.; Dr. Malik Simba, Professor Emeritus of History and Africana Studies, Fresno State University; and Uziel Jimenez, Antiracist Educator, and Co-founder of the Fresno Ethnic Studies Coalition. 

Four book study webinars are scheduled for February 22, March 1, 8 and 15 and are sponsored and hosted by Fresno City College. Each of these Monday webinars we will take a deep dive into Eddie S. Glaude’s New York Times bestselling book, Begin Again: James Baldwin's America and Its Urgent Lessons for Our Own. All webinars are free and will start at 4:00 pm.

The weekly faith speakers include:
