Katharine Gerbner will examine the historical links between churches in Philadelphia and the Caribbean during the early colonial period.
While Pennsylvania was founded as a Quaker colony, slavery was foundational to its early success, and there were many links between Philadelphia and Barbados. Gerbner will look at the tensions around slavery in early America, when many Quakers and Anglicans were trying to reconcile their Christian beliefs with slavery, rather than trying to end human bondage. Gerbner will also show how the history of Christian Slavery helps us understand the emergence of race and White Supremacy. She will show why it's essential to remember this uncomfortable history, and ask what we can learn from it today.
