LGBTQIA Alliance & Racial Justice Task Force: “The Black Church”

Friday, June 11, 2021 | 7:30pm

Join the Cathedral's LGBTQIA Alliance & the Racial Justice Task Force to discuss Episode 2 of PBS' "The Black Church".

Episode 2 documents how the Black church expanded its reach to address social inequality and minister to those in need. Our discussion will focus on Bishop Yvette Flunder, pastor of the City of Refuge United Church of Christ in Oakland, CA. Bishop Flunder describes her church as an effort to "create a spiritual community that embraces our collective cultures, faith paths, gender expressions, and sexual/affectional orientations while simultaneously freeing us from oppressive theologies that subjugate women, denigrate the LGBT community, and disconnect us from justice issues locally and globally".

You can stream Episode 2 via PBS, iTunes or Amazon; email LGBTQIA@cathedral.org if you need assistance.
