Critical Race Theory is in the news a lot these days, but many people don’t exactly know what it is. I had a conversation just the other day with someone about this. They thought that they knew what it was, and they definitely thought that they were against it… and when we started talking about what it was, they discovered that they really hadn’t understood what it was. That can easily happen when we haven’t read about something ourselves. So, in today’s episode, we will delve into what CRT is, using the definition provided in the book Christianity and Critical Race Theory: A Faithful and Constructive Conversation by Robert Chao Romero and Jeff M. Liou.
We will talk about how these two Christian authors define Critical Race Theory, and what our team finds helpful about the way they define it, as well as how they talk about the many theories that make up CRT.
