On the Prophetic Guidance of Civil Rights Witnesses
On Wednesday, November 1, Larycia Hawkins will deliver a guest lecture, entitled “Bearing the Cross in the Age of Donald J. Trump: The Example of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the American Civil Rights Movement.” The lecture will begin at 3:30pm in UVA’s Gibson Hall 142. Admission to the event is free, and the public is invited to attend.
Larycia A. Hawkins is the Abd el-Kader Visiting Faculty Fellow at the University of Virginia’s Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture. At the Institute, she is working on the Race, Faith, and Culture Project, which examines how multiracial communities of faith could impact American race relations; and the Pluralism Project, which studies changing majorities and minorities. Her recent publications include “Prophetic and Priestly: The Politics of a Black Catholic Parish” (2015) and “Jesus and Justice: The Moral Framing of the Black Agenda” (2015). Her writing, speaking, teaching, and scholarship are squarely animated by a conviction that political science should be relevant to the real world.
