Religion and Racial Justice Dialogue – Listening to Black Clergy

July 1 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

A new series from the Berkley Forum explores religion and racial justice in light of the Black Lives Matter protests related to the death of George Floyd. How does religion contribute, both positively and negatively, to the movement for racial justice? What concrete steps can faith leaders and religious practitioners take to fight racism in American society?

This panel will provide a platform for Black clergy from the Christian tradition to offer their varied theological and pastoral observations about what is going on in their congregations, their cities, and the nation as anti-racist efforts gather momentum. These clergy members also bring their perspectives as academics, authors, and political activists. The conversation will focus on the role of faith communities in the current political and social climate.
