Title

The Gift of Black Students to Graduate Theological Education

Description

An online forum conversation in observance of Lancaster Theological Seminary's annual African American Heritage Celebration, held virtually online via Zoom on February 17, 2022. Digital video recording (mp4). Duration: 1 hour, 7 minutes, 41 seconds.

This candid and insightful conversation features a nationally known leader in theological education, The Very Rev. Canon Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas, dean of the Episcopal Divinity School at Union Theological Seminary, in conversation with Lancaster Seminary's distinguished civil rights advocate and senior adjunct professor, The Rt. Rev. Dr. Nathan Baxter. This Black History Month forum is made possible by The Nathan D. Baxter Fund for African American Studies.

Black students bring many gifts to our seminary classroom discussions, communal worship, and social witness that have not always been appreciated. At times, Black worship and preaching styles, biblical interpretation, and even academic rigor were disregarded, diminished, and even demeaned. This enlightening and relevant discussion expands our understanding of and appreciation for authentic diversity and inclusion.
