Dr. Myisha Cherry: Racialized Forgiveness

Harold Stoner Clark 2021 Lecture

Dr. Myisha Cherry: Racialized Forgiveness

Dr. Myisha Cherry describes herself as a philosopher striving to provide value and provoke thought. She’s primarily interested in the role of emotions and attitudes in public life. In her talk, Dr. Cherry will introduce a concept that she refers to as ‘racialized forgiveness.’ She will argue that the practice of this type of forgiveness is morally objectionable because of its psychological origins, moral failures, and negative effects. She’ll then claim we need to practice forgiveness differently.
