Join us for “Religious Liberty Has Been White Too Long: Voices of Black Scholars,” our 2021 Shurden Lectures program.

In our discussions about religious liberty, how can we dismantle a narrative that centers white experiences and upholds white supremacy? Learn from four Black scholars on redefining religious freedom to deconstruct a harmful ideology deeply ingrained in our culture.

On April 14 at 5 p.m. Eastern Time/4 p.m. Central Time, tune in for the live event “Religious Liberty Has Been White Too Long: Voices of Black Scholars.” Dr. Nicole Turner of Yale University, Dr. David Goatley of Duke University Divinity School, Dr. Teresa L. Smallwood of Vanderbilt Divinity School, and Dr. Anthony Pinn of Rice University will present on the topic,  and they will be in a conversation moderated by BJC Director of Education Charles Watson Jr.

This event is free and open to all. Learn more about the scholars and sign up today. Visit for more information on the event.
