Black Queer Christian Lives Matter: Race, Religion, and Sexuality – an Intersectional Conversation - The Wesley Lecture
Dickinson College presents the Annual Wesley Lecture, featuring the Rev. Dr. Jay Williams, Senior Pastor at Union Church in Boston. The Rev. Jay (as he is known) is a queer cisgender man and partner to Robert. Williams is known as a charismatic leader and will discuss the deep roots of liberation theology and the Christian church’s difficult and important history of racism and anti-LGBTQIA+ actions. The keynote address will be followed by a Q & A session to discuss these important intersections.
This lecture is sponsored by the Clarke Forum for Contemporary Issues and the Center for Spirituality and Social Justice and co-sponsored by the Center for Spirituality & Social Justice, Office of LGBTQ Services, the Popel Shaw Center for Race & Ethnicity, and the Department of Religion.
