Exploring the Role of Christianity in Slavery

During the U.S. slave era, Christianity served both to justify slavery and to sustain those who experienced life as slaves. That "complicated and ugly" history is the subject of the Academy Award nominated "12 Years a Slave." A 7 3/4-minute news video prepared by correspondent Deborah Potter for Religion & Ethics Newsweekly, a source for cutting edge reporting at the intersection of religion and culture, explores the ambiguous role of Christian faith in the slavery institution and its abolition. Extended interviews with director Steve McQueen and actor Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Princeton Theological Seminary professor Yolanda Pierce offer additional perspective on the movie's themes.
