Next Thursday, Acton Research Fellow Anthony B. Bradley will give a talk at The Heritage Foundation on his latest book, Black and Tired: Essays on Race, Politics, Culture and International Development. In his book, Dr. Bradley addresses local and global disparities in human flourishing that call for prudential judgments connecting good intentions and moral philosophy with sound economic principles. Marvin Olasky has said of the work,
Dr. Thomas Sowell, black and eighty years old, displays no signs of tiredness in writing columns—but when he does, Anthony Bradley shows in Black and Tired why he should be Sowell’s successor. Dr. Bradley trumps liberal opponents with facts and wit, and does so within a Christian worldview that allows him to go deeper than conventional economics allows.
You may remember Dr. Bradley from his talks at Acton University. In addition to his work for Acton, Dr. Bradley is an associate professor of theology at The King’s College in New York City. He is also the author of Liberating Black Theology: The Bible and the Black Experience in America.
Dr. Bradley’s talk will be hosted by Jennifer Marshall, Director of the DeVos Center for Religion and Civil Society at The Heritage Foundation, at 10:00 AM on September 1st in Lehreman Auditorium at The Heritage Foundation’s headquarters, 214 Massachusetts Ave, NE.
