Faculty Development Session

Inescapable Blackness: A Chaplain's Perspective

Description

Monday, February 13, 2023
12-1 p.m. MST | 1-2 p.m. CST
Join via Zoom

This presentation grew out of current American racial unrest, Crystall's military childhood, and her chaplaincy call to be a bridge between heaven and earth, life and death, as well as black and white. During this session, Crystall reflects on the lifelong difficulties she experienced due to her African heritage, and how these occurrences influenced her view of self, others, and the world.

Join us virtually for this interactive conversation as we explore the following:

  • Expand our human experience and compassion.
  • Broaden perspectives while understanding how others live differently.
  • Increase our capacity to become a bridge between God's people.
  • Understand double consciousness, cultural invalidation, weathering, and intergenerational trauma.
  • This presentation is not a political discussion nor a form of collective judgment.
