Congregation

Author Discussion with Canon Theologian Kelly Brown Douglas

Monday, November 22, 2021 | 7:00pm

Join the Cathedral and the congregation Racial Justice Task Force for a discussion of Canon Theologian Kelly Brown Douglas’s new book, Resurrection Hope: A Future Where Black Lives Matter. Canon Douglas’s book comes out on November 17.

In the book, she reflects upon the questions asked by her son, “How do we really know that God cares when Black people are still getting killed? How long do we have to wait for the justice of God? I get it, that Christ is Black, but that doesn’t seem to be helping us right now.”

Exploring the message of Confederate monuments and the “Make America Great Again” slogan, she examines the failures of even “good white Christians” and struggles with the hope that “Black Lives Matter,” before reaching deep into her own experience and the faith of Black folks to find her way back to Resurrection Hope. 

The program will consist of a presentation by Canon Douglas on her new book, followed by an audience Q&A. Canon Missioner Leonard Hamlin hosts the program.
