Charles Marsh on Racism, Reconciliation, and Redemption

Marsh ended his lecture series by playing Bernice Reagon’s version of “Come and Go with Me (to that Land),” a gospel song from 1930. The lyrics of the song—We’re all together in that land where I’m bound, There’s no more hatred in that land—served as a poignant reminder of the hope Marsh’s work encourages us to find in both the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and in the Civil Rights Movement: the revivification of the spirit that allows us to truly comprehend the shared humanity of all people on earth, and to believe in the possibility of both redemption and reconciliation.
