              Dr. Stephen Boyd, J. Allen Easley Professor of Religion at Wake Forest University, will address the Moral Monday Movement that began during the 2013 Session of the North Carolina Legislature. Attention will be given to select aspects of the legislative agenda, their effects on various members of the state’s population, media coverage, and the nature, growth, and aims of the demonstrations, including the 950 who engaged in non-violent civil disobedience and were arrested. He will touch on the larger historical context of race and class in the US and North Carolina and then suggest that this new movement has the potential to answer Dr. King’s call for a broadening of the Civil Rights Movement to a multi-racial human rights movement.

                  from ZSR Library Added 33 0 0

                  Why did enslaved blacks embrace Christianity? Motivated by this question, Dr. Derek S. Hicks, in his recently published book, Reclaiming Spirit in the Black Faith Tradition, provides an interpretation of the function of Christianity for oppressed African Americans. His work emphasizes everyday religious practices that engage culture in an effort to reclaim the human spirit fractured by physical, political, spiritual, and social degradation. Giving attention to black faith as articulated during antebellum period America, Hicks asserts that restorative sensibilities—expressed in moral politics, protest documents, material culture, music, literature, and even aesthetic presentation—disclose a ‘reclaiming spirit’ that permeates all of black religious life and thought.
