Bonnyman Forum: 'Can A Space Be Raced?' with Dr. Anthea Butler

Date: November 22, 2020
7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Off-site Location
Since 2014, the Anne Berry Bonnyman Symposium has given Trinity Church a living platform for addressing systemic racism in our church and community. Honoring the Rev. Anne Berry Bonnyman (rector 2006-2012) the Symposium for 2020-2021 takes the form of three Sunday evening forums in which we'll explore Christian worship and faith through the dimensions of space, sound and spirit. 
Join us on November 22 for a discussion with Dr. Anthea Butler about the "space" of Trinty Church, how history contributes to a "raced" space and how we can move through it. Dr. Butler is Associate Professor of Religious Studies and Africana Studies at the University of Pennsylvania and a historian of African American and American religion. Her interests span African American religion and history, race, politics, Evangelicalism, gender and sexuality, media, and popular culture. Dr. Butler serves as President Elect of the American Society for Church History and is also a member of the American Academy of Religion and the American Historical Association.

Please join us via Zoom.
