Black Lives Do Matter: What Prophetic Voice Does the Black Catholic Experience in this Country Have to Offer Christianity and US Culture at this Time?
5–7 p.m. | Nov. 14, 2019
Lone Mountain (LM) 270 - Del Santo Reading Room
We have come this far by faith. Black Catholic History Month is a time to remember the legacy and strength — as well as celebrate the witness — that the Black Catholic community continues to offer Christianity and US culture. Dr. Shawnee Daniels-Sykes will help members of the USF community and wider Bay Area reflect on how this legacy shapes the future.
Guests are encouraged to check out the the following handouts in preparation for the lecture:
- Pastoral letter against racism, "Open Wide Our Hearts"
- Key Principles of Catholic Christian Social Teaching
- Cycle of Prejudice and Oppression
Thank you to our co-sponsors: Black Achievement Success and Engagement, Loyola House Jesuit Community, The Office of Diversity Engagement and Community Outreach, The Joan and Ralph Lane Center for Catholic Social Thought and the Ignatian Tradition, and University Ministry.
