Tuesday night-2nd session for Perspectives on Our History
Dear Baylor Family:
Please join us tomorrow evening for the second Conversation in our three-part Conversation Series. Dr. Ronald Johnson, the Ralph and Bessie Mae Lynn Chair of History in Baylor University’s History Department, will be joined by a panel of experts to explore the history of slavery in Texas and the relationship between slavery and Baptist life. This discussion follows a broader look at slavery in America, held last Tuesday, and narrows our focus toward understanding the historical context of Baylor’s founding and early years. A third Conversation on March 16 will examine the connections between slavery and Baylor University’s founding.
This historical study is part of our commitment to forthrightly and fully present Baylor’s history and to foster an environment of racial equality throughout the Baylor Family.
I hope you’ll be a part of this important discussion tomorrow night.
