Black Lives Matter and Sacred Politics
April 7, 2019 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
St. John’s will host a Community Lecture by OSU doctoral fellow Seth Gaiters, in collaboration with the OSU Center for the Study of Religion, on Sunday, April 7, from 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm. This lecture is part of The Center’s Community Lecture Series for 2018-2019, which focuses on “Religions of the World: Past and Present.” Mr. Gaiters is a PhD candidate in the Department of Contemporary Studies at OSU. The central focus of his research is the intersection of religion, race, and politics, particularly on how religion has been used both to aid and abet exclusionary practices on the one hand, and to foster pathways towards social justice on the other. His lecture at St. John’s, in the Sanctuary, entitled “Black Lives Matter and Sacred Politics,” comes at an important moment in our society and our church, as we embark on the work of Being Beloved Community. A reception and time for questions and discussion will follow this timely lecture in Kilbourne Hall.
