The Center for Black Church Studies will host a conversation with social justice leader, advocate, and activist Tamika Mallory. Mallory will speak about her personal journey as a woman of faith and discuss her role as a rising leader within contemporary social justice movements.
Mallory is a prominent voice on issues related to civil rights, equal rights for women, healthcare, gun violence, and police misconduct. In January of this year, she gained recognition as one of four co-chairs for the Women’s March on Washington. She has been applauded as “a leader of tomorrow” by the Obama administration and has landed on the lists of TIME 100: The Most Influential People of 2017 as well as Fortune’s World’s Greatest Leaders.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit Black Church Studies.
“One of the biggest lessons I learned was how to be charitable to views other than my own. Christian charity was shown to me, not just in the readings for class, but from the professors, and the Seminary community.”
