Nearly 50 years ago Martin Luther King, Jr. called 11 am on Sunday morning the most segregated hour in America. While some houses of worship in the U.S. have become more diverse in recent years, about eight-in-ten American congregants still attend services at a place where a single racial or ethnic group comprises at least 80% of the congregation. Our panel will discuss whether the American expression of religion inherently segregates or divides along religious lines and whether religion bridges or widens the racial divide.
