Fourth Annual Community Conversation on Race and Faith and the Kelso Lecture with the Rev. Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas

In 2014, in the wake of tensions surrounding the grand jury decision not to indict the police officer involved in the shooting of Michael Brown, the Union Baptist Church of Swissvale and Pittsburgh Mennonite Church together contacted Pittsburgh Theological Seminary to begin to address through ongoing conversations what Martin Luther King described as the “most segregated hour of the week”—namely time spent in worship.

Now in its fourth year of conversation, the Seminary is hosting the Rev. Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas, an American scholar and social justice activist, as the 2018 Kelso Endowed Lecturer. Her lecture will be the centerpiece of a day-long event designed to equip and empower individuals to form on-going relationships that cross traditional boundaries to work for justice, especially racial justice.

This event is free to participants and targeted toward students, community members, and members and leaders in faith-based organizations.

This lecture is supported by the James A. Kelso Endowment. Co-sponsored with Metro-Urban Institute, PTS.
