What components have created our society's racialized optic--a view wherein nonwhite our bodies are objectified, marginalized, and destroyed--and how may perhaps any such gaze be resisted? Is there wish for a church and academy marked by way of distinction instead of assimilation? This booklet pursues those questions via surveying the works of Willie James Jennings and J.
