Black Lives Matter: A Love Story with Vincent Lloyd


Saturday, October 12
9:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.

Fee: $40 (includes morning coffee)

 



The news is filled with stories of police brutality, Black Lives Matter protests, mass incarceration, poverty, and environmental racism, leaving us overwhelmed at the violence facing the black community.  How did we get here?  What can we do about it?  Why does the church often fall deafeningly silent?

 

Come explore these questions as we learn about a movement towards racial justice grounded in the same love that is central to the Christ story and the beloved community. Envision what racial justice really looks like and reflect on how struggle and worship can be one in the same.

 

Vincent Lloyd is an associate professor at Villanova University, in the Theology Department and the Africana Studies Program. As author or editor of ten books, including Anti-Blackness and Christian Ethics, Black Natural Law, and In Defense of Charisma, Lloyd explores the way that religious ideas and practices can be mobilized to advance social justice.
