PHS LIVE: A Conversation with Rev. Charles L. Howard, PhD

October 22, 2020 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm

Join us on October 22 from 2-3pm on Zoom and Facebook Live as we welcome The Reverend Dr. Charles Lattimore Howard for a conversation about Black Theology and its role in mass movements of the past and today.

Black Theology as a discipline can be traced back at least to the civil rights movements of the 1950s and has had significant impact on seminarians, scholars, activists and everyone in between since that time period. This conversation will explore the rich history of Black Theology and the theological implications of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Discussion (45 min) and Q&A (15 min)

Charles L. Howard is University Chaplain at the University of Pennsylvania, his alma mater. Prior to his return to Penn, he served as a chaplain in hospice and hospital and as a street outreach worker to individuals experiencing homelessness in Philadelphia. His writing has been featured in such publications as Black Theology: An International Journal, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Huffington Post, and Slate. His books include Black Theology as Mass Movement, a call to theologians to expand the reach of their theological work, and Pond River Ocean Rain, about going deeper with a big God.
