Critical Race Theory: Colliding World Views

First Congregational United

Critical Race Theory: Colliding World Views

Anything with the phrase Critical Theory has its roots in a Marxist analysis of the structural causes behind economic issues. It is one of several approaches to a systemic or structural approach to understanding social problems. The basic approach emerged from the Frankfurt School in the 1930s and distinguishes itself by arguing that major social problems are driven by economic, political, or cultural structures and not due to the fault of individuals.

Recently “Critical Race Theory” is being used as a divisive meme to rally white supremacists into political action.

We will watch two videos on the topic. One by PBS News Hour and the other by Christopher Rufo, which is a call to arms for those who do not believe that discussions about race should be happening in today’s America.

Insurgent Democracy: The Nonpartisan League in North American Politics

First Congregational United

Insurgent Democracy: The Nonpartisan League in North American Politics

In 1915, western farmers mounted one of the most significant challenges to party politics America has seen: the Nonpartisan League, which sought to empower citizens and restrain corporate influence. Before its collapse in the 1920s, the League counted over 250,000 paying members, spread to thirteen states and two Canadian provinces, controlled North Dakota’s state government, and birthed new farmer-labor alliances. Join Minnesota historian Michael Lansing as he talks about his book that sheds new light on this little-known, but extremely important episode of America’s past.
