Synopsis

How is it that in America the image of Jesus Christ has been used both to justify the atrocities of white supremacy and to inspire the righteousness of civil rights crusades? InThe Color of Christ, Edward J. Blum and Paul Harvey weave a tapestry of American dreams and visionsfrom witch hunts to web pages, Harlem to Hollywood, slave cabins to South Park, Mormon revelations to Indian reservationsto show how Americans visually remade the Son of God time and again into a sacred symbol of their greatest aspirations, deepest terrors, and mightiest strivings for racial power and justice. The Color of Christuncovers how, in a country founded by Puritans who destroyed depictions of Jesus, Americans came to believe in the whiteness of Christ. Some envisioned a white Christ who would sanctify the exploitation of Native Americans and African Americans and bless imperial expansion. Many others pictured a messiah, not necessarily white, who was willing and able to confront white supremacy. The color of Christ still symbolizes Americas most combustible divisions, revealing the power and malleability of race and religion from colonial times to the presidency of Barack Obama.
