This discussion will also be live-streamed to our website HERE.
The Black Religious Thought & Life (BRTL) at Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School (CRCDS) is rooted in Black prophetic faith traditions and committed to liberation, equity, and inclusion. BRTL understands that Black religious experiences and expressions are vast and exist within, and beyond, church walls and other sacred spaces. BRTL also recognizes that Black religious and spiritual experiences lend themselves to public and personal inquiry, critical reflection, action, and advocacy. Toward that end, BRTL celebrates the diversity of thought in Black religious studies, advocates for social transformation and liberation, and cultivates bodies of knowledge and experiences relative to Black religious thought and life toward contextually-relevant scholarship and practice.
