Harvey book named outstanding academic title


The Color of Christ by  Blum, Harvey
Editors of “Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries” recently named the “The Color of Christ: The Son of God and the Saga of Race in America” one of the Top 25 Books in its annual Outstanding Academic Titles List.

“The Color of Christ” was written by Paul Harvey, professor in the UCCS Department of History, and Edward Blum, associate professor, Department of History, San Diego State University. The book explores the nature of Christ worship in the U.S. and addresses how his image has been visually remade to champion causes of white supremacists and civil rights leaders alike, and why the idea of a white Christ has endured.
