Public Policy and the Black Church: The Urgency of Now | Session 2
Time & Location
About the Event
The Public Theology and Racial Justice Collaborative and the Kelly Miller Smith Institute on Black Church Studies are excited to engage our community leaders in this dialog in light of the legacy of Rev. Kelly Miller Smith, Sr. This year marks the 100th year of his birth. His prophetic witness, his legacy of service to the community, and his political tenacity are exemplars to draw from in our tumultuous times. Area clergy will challenge us to place all-hands-on deck as we evaluate public policy that impacts our membership, our communities and our neighbors.
For such a time as this, we will discuss the importance of civic engagement, recent legislative actions impacting our community, and effective ecclesial response to our current policy landscape. The second of three conversations, this panel will include Rev. Dr. Darrell Drumwright, Elder Jessica Ganzie, Rev. Aaron Marble, Rev. Keith Caldwell, and Rev. Dr. Christopher Jackson, moderator.
