    This is Woman's Work

    Tuesday, June 16, 2020 at 6:00 PM until 7:15 PMCentral Daylight Time


    The exploitation of black women’s labor has a long history and is even more visible now in the era of pandemic, considering who is “essential workers.” Womanism speaks to this. The School of the Prophets is where womanism is more than a siloed school of thought. Womanism is integral to how theological education is shaped and experienced. This intergenerational panel of four womanist scholars represent many disciplines, including homiletics, ethics, religion and psychology. The panelists speak out of the urgency and import of the times and proclaim hope in the midst of the pandemic.
