Rebecca L. Davis and Kristin Kobes Du Mez host a discussion in celebration of Prof. Davis’s new book, Public Confessions: The Religious Conversions that Changed American Politics. Public Confessions reveals the controversial religious conversions that shaped modern America. Rebecca L. Davis explains why the new faiths of notable figures including Clare Boothe Luce, Whittaker Chambers, Sammy Davis Jr., Marilyn Monroe, Muhammad Ali, Chuck Colson, and others riveted the American public. Unconventional religious choices charted new ways of declaring an “authentic” identity amid escalating Cold War fears of brainwashing and coercion.
