Presented by Joseph E. Coleman Northwest Regional Library
Jericho Brown writes in The Tradition about religion and spirituality from his personal perspective and lived experiences of being a queer Black man, reflecting on both the ugliness of institutional violence and the beauty and expansiveness of personal faith.
Inspired by his work, this interfaith panel discussion will explore belonging, wholeness, and building social transformation from Black queer perspectives within religious traditions.
Panelists include Dr. Koach Baruch Frazier, a rabbinical intern at Kol Tzedek; Victor Jackson, a member of the Muslim community and founder of OURchive Germantown; Michael (Oba Ana Akinwale) Hinson, a priest in the Yoruba tradition initiated into Palo by Oloye Ifa Karad and into the Sango Cult (Lukumi Tradition) by Betty Alridge (Oni Sango) and Gilberto Martinez (Olo Obatala – Ibae), and longtime public policy expert in the areas of public health, community development, and government; and Jason Oliver Evans, a minister at St. Paul’s Baptist Church and Ph.D. student researcher in social constructions of race, gender, and sexuality in Christian faith and practice.
