Location: Online Zoom Webinar

Following the killing of George Floyd by an armed police officer, across the United States and around the world people are protesting and taking action to challenge the systemic racism that brought us to this point. Clergy members grapple with this reality while serving as spiritual leaders for their communities. Black clergy members are at the forefront of diverse experiences and actions in their communities.

This panel provided 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 gathered momentum. These clergy members also brought their perspectives as academics, authors, and political activists. The conversation focused on the role of faith communities in the current political and social climate.
