By David Blight

In studying the period of Reconstruction after the Civil War, Race and Reunion identifies a pattern of thought that impeded racial progress at the time and still does so today. We have a tendency to submerge and avoid difficult conversations about race because of concerns that doing so will be divisive and undermine unity. Advocates of racial justice, both during Reconstruction and today, value unity as well, but see unity as something we can only achieve — in a true and lasting sense — if we work “through” racial issues, rather than avoiding them. As Dr. King said: “True peace is not the absence of tension but the presence of justice.”

While our students reach exceptional academic goals and exhibit first-rate athletic and artistic achievements, as an Episcopal school we place equal emphasis upon moral and spiritual education.
