Black Lives Matter: A Love Story with Vincent Lloyd

The news is filled with stories of police brutality, Black Lives Matter protests, mass incarceration, poverty, and environmental racism, leaving us overwhelmed at the violence facing the black community. How did we get here? What can we do about it? Why does the church often fall deafeningly silent?  Come explore these questions as we learn about a movement towards racial justice grounded in the same love that is central to the Christ story and the beloved community. Envision what racial justice really looks like and reflect on how struggle and worship can be one in the same.  Vincent Lloyd is an associate professor at Villanova University, in the Theology Department and the Africana Studies Program. In the ten books he has written or edited, he explores the way that religious ideas and practices can be mobilized to advance social justice. We hope you can join us at River’s Edge, 3430 Rocky River Drive, Cleveland on Saturday, October 12,
from 9 - 11:30 a.m. To sign up you can contact our office at
