Cindy Brown

Cindy Brown is an award-winning photojournalist who has documented religious diversity in southern Mississippi. Brown’s photos show a religious diversity in Mississippi that most people never encounter or even consider: Buddhists in Biloxi, Hindus in Jackson, Muslims in Sumrall, Hispanic Catholics in Hattiesburg, Pagans in Ovette, German Baptists in Hot Coffee, Episcopalians at Camp Bratton-Green and a Jewish community in Hattiesburg.

Brown gave a guest lecture entitled “Seeking the Divine in Mississippi: A Visual Documentation” as part of the series Thursday Nights: Conversations in Lived Theology. For a listing of all our Occasional Lectures, click here.
