Webinar: "The Black Madonna for Racial Liberation"
Join the Medieval Institute, the Initiative on Race and Resilience, and the departments of Africana Studies, PLS and Theology for the final webinar in our series on Pilgrimage! Can the embodied practice of pilgrimage move us toward healing and racial liberation?
Christena Cleveland, Ph.D., joins us to discuss her new book, God Is A Black Woman (2022), which chronicles her 400-mile walking pilgrimage across France to the ancient shrines of Black Madonnas. Cleveland tells of the spiritual transformation she experienced as she encountered a God who affirms the sacredness of all Black people.
This webinar is part of a series of spring-semester events exploring the practice of pilgrimage, both historically across faith traditions and in present-day work for social justice.
