School of Theology professor Teddy Hickman-Maynard speaks at Boston University’s Rhett Talks, presented by Residence Life. Filmed September 7, 2015.

Racially motivated violence, such as the massacre at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC, highlight the vital importance of ongoing anti-racism work. However, such horrific events also provoke self-protective narcissism and paralyzing nihilism which impede the very efforts necessary to combat racism. Research on the cross-racial and inter-religious dialogue that occurs among members of historically black collegiate gospel choirs at predominantly white universities provides hope that such feelings of narcissism and nihilism can be overcome and that racism, and the violence that accompanies it, are not inevitable.
