The Holocaust Service of Remembrance and Lecture
The Rev. Dr. Stephen G. Ray Jr. is president of Chicago Theological Seminary and of the Society for the Study of Black Religion. Seeking to understand the evil that is racism, Ray became a student of the Holocaust, focusing on the systematic murder of Jews by ordinary individuals in villages across Europe. A comparative analysis of lynchings in the U.S. led to his insight about a “moral geography” creating spaces of atrocity or, alternatively, goodness.
