Have you ever considered the great variety of religious views that have shaped American political life?

In this class we’ll discuss the significance of the relationship between religion and politics by looking at the interaction of the religious views and political lives of six pairs of influential Americans: Thomas Paine and Thomas Jefferson, John Brown and Frederick Douglas, Susan B. Anthony and Eleanor Roosevelt, W. E. B. Dubois and Malcolm X, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sandra Day O’Connor, and Reinhold Niebuhr and Jerry Falwell.

Join this illustrious group for a series of stimulating discussions.
