Theologian caps Tea Talk series


W. Kenneth Cauthen, the John Price Crozer Griffith Professor Emeritus of Theology at Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School, will discuss how people deal with issues of race, class, and culture at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 20. His talk in the Welles-Brown Room of Rush Rhees Library is free and open to the public.

Cauthen's 2003 book, I Don't Care What the Bible Says: An Interpretation of the South examines race, class, and culture and the complex relationships among them. He is the author of 18 books, including The Impact of American Religious Liberalism, which has been the standard text in the field.

His presentation is the last in this year's Tea Talks series, which is presented on selected Sundays in a casual atmosphere with tea and biscuits. The programs are sponsored by River Campus Libraries and are free to the public. For more information, contact the library at x5-4461 or visit
