Jefferson Davis’ statue coming down in Richmond, Va., and Walmart refusing to fly the Mississippi state flag because of its Confederate emblem are powerful signs the movement against white supremacy is taking hold, Robert P. Jones said during an online discussion hosted June 26 by the BJC.
“We are at a moment of reckoning,” said Jones, CEO and founder of the PRRI research group. “This is an opportunity for us to begin a truth-telling campaign” that will “set us on a path of reconciliation and a path of justice.”
Jones was the featured guest of BJC’s “A National Conversation on White Supremacy and American Christianity,” held at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., and streamed to more than 1,000 viewers.
