Dr. AnneMarie Mingo will deliver a public lecture on March 7 at 7:00 p.m. in the Theron Room of the Princeton Theological Seminary Library.
Dr. Mingo is the 2018–2019 Ella Baker Visiting Professor of Black Studies at University of California, Santa Barbara and Assistant Professor of African American Studies and Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Penn State University. She received her BS in Business Administration from Florida A&M University, MBA from Rollins College, MDiv from Princeton Theological Seminary, and PhD in Ethics and Society at Emory University. Her dissertation was entitled “Black Churchwomen’s Lived Theology and Liberative Social Ethics during the Civil Rights Movement,” in which she constructed a theology and ethic from oral histories gathered from Black religious women who were active in the Movement.
Her research interests include twentieth-century Black Freedom Struggles with a specific focus on the U.S. Civil Rights Movement and South African Apartheid Movement, socio-religious activism of Black women, and theological and ethical influences in social movements. She also writes in areas of Black Church activism, peace and reconciliation, and the influence of Black music and media on social activism.

“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.”
