"Black Lives Matter: A Theology"
Register Now for the Lakeland Founder's Day Lecture

Tuesday, March 5, 6:30-8 pm

Propelling the nation into a new consciousness over the last decade, the Black Lives Matter movement has galvanized conversations about the conditions under which Black people live in the United States: racism's many manifestations; social, economic, health, and other disparities; mass incarceration; police brutality—and these are just a few. Christians, like their non-Christian counterparts, are equally divided over the movement, its goals, indeed, even its slogan. Taking a different look at Black Lives Matter, Dr. Craig Ford's presentation will address Black Lives Matter through a theological lens, providing responses to questions like, 'What does the Black Lives Matter movement reveal about God and about who we are as diverse people?' and 'How should Christians (all people seeking the common good) continue to engage the movement in the year 2024?
