*Canceled* Religious Freedom in American History
March 16, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pmFree
In collaboration with Wayne Community College
Featuring Joanna Sierks Smith, Graduate Teaching Fellow
We all learn in grade school that America was founded on religious freedom, but did you know that when the Puritans arrived at Plymouth they planned to establish a theocracy? And that until the 1840s America had state churches? This program provides historical context for contemporary debates over religious freedom in America and highlights key moments from the last century to show the complexities of actually instituting the contested ideal.
Cost: This event is free and open to the public.
