On Wednesday, October 26 at 11:15 am EST, join Dean Douglas for a Just Conversation with Amey Victoria Adkins-Jones, Assistant Professor of Theology and African and African Diaspora Studies at Boston College. Dr. Amey is also a member of EDS at Union’s Expanding the Moral Imaginary Through Film cohort. In this conversation, they will discuss Dr. Adkins-Jones’ upcoming monograph project, Immaculate Misconceptions: Black Mariology, Freedom, Fugitivity, a theological account of the rise of the global sex trade. They will also talk about race and film, specifically how Black pain, tragedy, and trauma are depicted in film.
EDS at Union’s Facebook Live series Just Conversations with Kelly Brown Douglas explores the racialized inequities intrinsic to our nation and our collective responsibility to create a more just future.
These 30-minute conversations featured on the EDS at Union Facebook page will invite activists and religious, political, and thought leaders to discuss their work being champions for justice. Videos are also available on the Union YouTube Page.
