J. Kameron Carter, associate professor in theology and black church studies at Duke Divinity School, will answers viewer questions about Christianity and modern concepts of race on "Office Hours," a live webcast series.

Watch the conversation live on the Duke Ustream channel. Submit a question for Carter by email, on Twitter with the hashtag #dukelive or by posting to the Duke University Facebook page.

As race and religion continue to be flash points in American politics and society, Carter examines in is book, "Race: A Theological Account," the role of Christianity and Western philosophy in the making of modern perceptions of race. He also uses slave narratives and early Christian thought to find theological arguments he says can counter modern misunderstandings of race and point to a new orientation for the faith.

Duke's "Office Hours" webcast series allows members of the Duke community and others to engage in live conversations with faculty about their research and scholarship.
