From the publisher: “Charles Marsh brings Bonhoeffer to life in his full complexity for the first time. With a keen understanding of the multifaceted writings, often misunderstood, as well as the imperfect man behind the saintly image, here is a nuanced, exhilarating, and often heartrending portrait that lays bare Bonhoeffer’s flaws and inner torment, as well as the friendships and the faith that sustained and finally redeemed him. Strange Glory is a momentous achievement.”

Signs of Protest: Photographs from the Civil Rights Era

vmfa-logo-large (1)Now through September 7th, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA) in Richmond is hosting the exhibition Signs of Protest: Photographs from the Civil Rights Era.

The photography gallery features images which highlight protest signs from the Civil Rights era. The exhibition also contains photographs which depict the culture of resistance surrounding the protest signs, with an emphasis on Civil Rights leaders such as Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, and Stokely Carmichael. The exhibition is just one in the Race, Place & Identity series, which began in January 2014, that hopes to facilitate community-wide conversations about civil rights and social justice.

The VMFA is also currently hosting Posing Beauty in African American Culture. For a complete list of participating institutions and for more information concerning their exhibition and program offerings, click here.
