Liberating Theologies Speaker Series
October 6, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
The Liberating Theologies conference is a one-day experience exploring varying theologies with an emphasis on liberation and inclusion for the oppressed and marginalized.
North Carolina has been a political, social justice, and religious battleground in the United States for decades. Regressive views on religion, the LGBTQ community and other marginalized groups have harmed many of civil rights advances. There is a need in North Carolina to make a bold statement about intersectional justice; and the importance of restorative justice for those in the LGBTQ community that have been religiously ostracized.
This conference is also proposed in honor of Dr. James H. Cone, to celebrate his historic contribution to the theology world, in particular black liberation theology. The theme, “Liberating The Gospels” explores varying theologies with emphasis on liberation and inclusion. Theologies to be explored: Womanist Theology, Queer Theology, Black Liberation Theology and Emerging Theology each with an inclusivity framework.
