Moore, who is a pastor in Santa Barbara, Calif., and occasional writer for Huffington Post, will provide a talk exploring destructive messages that were hidden in his religious upbringing, including racist constructs and exclusivity, along with rationalization of colonialism and manipulation by guilt.

Moore is well-versed in American history and a leading voice in some of his area’s gatherings related to the Black Lives Matter movement.

A question and answer period will follow and donations to help offset the university’s expenses to bring this speaker to St. Stephen will be accepted.
