Description

For centuries, the black church has served as the center of black life and culture as well as providing important links between the black community and the rest of the world. From religious instruction, education, socialization, political engagement, and economic empowerment, the black church has played a critically important role. Unfortunately, significant parts of the history of the black church and its leadership are at risk of being lost forever. Are You Saved? The History of Blacks in Religion provides an opportunity to learn more. Hosted by the Dean of the School of Divinity at Wake Forest University, Jonathan Lee Walton, this panel provides an opportunity to learn more and features Abyssinian Baptist Church’s The Reverend Dr. Calvin O. Butts, III, former President of the Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School’s The Reverend Dr. Marvin McMickle, and Assistant Professor at Yale University Divinity School, The Reverend Dr. Eboni Marshall Turman. Following the discussion is a Q&A session with questions from The HistoryMakers ReligionMakers Advisory Committee.

This 90-minute program is scheduled to stream on YouTube and Facebook Live at 12:00 noon EST on Wednesday, December 2, 2020 as the second installment of The HistoryMakers 20@2020: 20 Days and 20 Nights Convening and Celebration.
