African American Churches, Poverty, And Women

January 15, 2013

Hour 1:           What roles have African American church communities played in politics and poverty since the Civil Rights Era and what can they do in the future? We’ll spend this hour with Keri Day, Ph.D. [1], Assistant Professor of Theological and Social Ethics and Black Church Studies at Brite Divinity School and author of “Unfinished Business: Black Women, the Black Church, and the Struggle to Thrive in America” (Orbis Books, 2012). Day will participate in this year’s Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture [2] Martin Luther King Day Symposium [3].
