Research and Theory

Abstract

In this presentation, we describe two studies both situated in a suburban town where a Confederate statue stands, where a faith-based university has grown around three sides of the statue. The presenters conducted an autoethnography about one demonstrator’s experience participating in a grassroots movement to move the statue. We also plan to conduct and describe a follow-up study that examines the intersection of white ally and faith identity development.
