African Americans have a connection to and understanding of nature, rooted in Africa and going back generations in the United States. Theology, history, and contemporary experience can be traced through environmental activism in and through the church. Dianne Glave, Coordinator of Diversity Development with the Western Pennsylvania United Methodist Church Conference Center, will begin the discussion with Rev. Dr. Kapya John Kaoma (STH ’10) following. This event is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Lowell Institute. A reception will follow the event.
