The Politics Of Race And Feminism
We continue with our series Ask Me About My Feminist Agenda and are delighted to have The Rev. Wil Gafney back on the podcast. Her unique approach to The Bible in regards to Race, Gender, Ethnicity and Culture have been a blessing in my own “faith journey.” We discuss her ideas on Feminism, Race and Politics as well as her book Womanist Midrash: A Reintroduction to the Women of the Torah and the Throne.

Wil Gafney: Womanist Midrash
Whitewashing the Bible
The AxPx Podcast Episode #20
The History Channel‘s presentation of the miniseries “event” The Bible has sparked reactions of all kinds. From Mega-Church Evangelicals like Rick Warren and Joel Osteen enthusiasm about the “power” of the show, to biblical scholars such as Dr. Joel M. Hoffman voicing their distain for the show. After the first episode aired, we read many opinions on both sides. The one thing that didn’t seem to be discussed in depth was the obvious “Whitewashing” of all biblical characters. From the underwear model “perfection” of Adam and Eve, to the Scottish brogue of Noah and the Brad Pitt look-a-like chosen to play Jesus; something didn’t gel. Thankfully, The Rev. Wil Gafney, Ph.D. wouldn’t let her disappointment stay quiet. Her article Black Samson & White Women on the History Channel turned many heads with her criticism of The History Channel’s (along with Producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey) casting choices. This week, we are honored to be speaking with Dr. Gafney about her thoughts and opinions. Visit the AxPx website.
