In honor of Black History Month, this Womanist symposium honors the voices and experiences of Black women and their contributions to society throughout history. Led by famed Womanist scholar, Rev. Dr. Teresa Fry Brown (Bandy Professor of Preaching, Candler School of Theology at Emory University), the theme for this year’s symposium, “…But I’m Still Here,” acknowledges and explores all the ways that Black women persevere in society, the church, and the academy.

During the lecture and response, three scholars from two different academic generations will have an interdisciplinary, Womanist, theological discussion that will be both scholarly and practical in its orientation.

 Students enrolled in the GTU Women's Studies in Religion certificate program will receive two co-curricular units for attending. 

On Friday, February 23 at 12:05pm, Rev. Dr. Brown will be preaching in SFTS’ Montgomery Chapel. All are welcome.
