Black Lives Matter: A Moral Account of Anti-Racist Activism

  • 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM
  • Online via Zoom

For the Keynote Address of this year's Day of Learning and Speaking Out, Rev. Dr. Eboni Marshall Turman will address the textures of Black suffering in the US and the development of Black moral activisms in the public square. Specific emphasis will be placed on the tenuous nature of black breath (#ICan'tBreathe) and the transformative viability of the "die-in" as one contemporary form of nonviolent direct action. It will conclude with practical strategies for anti-racist justice-making in the world. Dr. Turman teaches constructive theology, ethics, and African American religion at Yale University Divinity School.
