The Color of Christ: The Son of God and the Saga of Race in America

Professors Blum and Harvey provide a much needed historical analysis of the way “god” has been presented as “white” in the form of Jesus Christ. Their examination of the intersections of “race” and religion in America illuminate how such images were developed and disseminated to perpetuate the ideology of white supremacy and the practices of antiblack racism.
