Myths and misconceptions on American religious history on Tuesday's Access Utah
In a recent history class, USU Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow Chris Babits offered students the opportunity to write and record a short podcast on myths and misconceptions of American religious history. We’ll hear some of those podcasts today. Among them are pieces titled: “One Nation Under God: When the Pledge of Allegiance Went to War with Communism,” “White Devil, Black Jesus: Religious Influences in the Black Power Movement,” “Religious Insanity through the Eyes of Elizabeth Packard,” and “Drugs, Unemployment and Government Overreach: Fighting for Native American Religious Freedom.” Chris Babits and one of his students, Chloe Miller, will join us.
