Voices in the Wilderness: Dismantling Anti-Black Racism, A Historical and Theological Dialogue

Instructors

Dr. Irene Moore Davis, the Rev. Steve Greene, Br. Reginald Crenshaw, the Rev. Michael Blair, and the Rev. Wilson Akinwale.

Course Overview

This course is offered through Huron University as a part of the Licentiate in Theology program. 

With the support of content experts of Black, African, and Caribbean descent, participants will be introduced to the history of ancient and pre-colonial African civilizations as well as Black communities in the Caribbean and Canada.

This course will explore Black voices in the scriptures and contributions of early Christians of African descent. Together we will wrestle with the impact of colonization, the Transatlantic Slave Trade, and race as a social construct, on the lives of people of African descent. 

Students will contend with ways in which Christian faith traditions and institutions have both facilitated and confronted anti-Black racism and be introduced to an overview of challenges facing Canadians of Black, African, and Caribbean descent in the present day.

Particular attention will be given to the ways in which church leaders and people of faith, as an expression of our shared values and beliefs, can participate in dismantling anti-Black racism in favour of inclusion and belonging.
