Are the Gods Afraid of Black Sexuality? Religion and the Burdens of Black Sexual Politics

Thursday, October 23 - Friday, October 24, 2014
Columbia Campus
|

We are living through a moment
 of tremendous change at the intersection of race, gender, sexuality, and religion. This moment marks a milestone that has significant implications for those who study and practice religion alike. “Are the Gods
 Afraid of Black Sexuality?” brings scholars, activists, and religious leaders together to explore a range of historical and contemporary phenomena associated with religion, race, gender, and sexuality, as these topics coalesce and converge to make major changes in the lives of women and men. The task before us is to unearth and engage with the often-unstated normative claims surrounding race and religion, gender and sex, which continue to inform the work of scholars of (and the lives of people within) the U.S. and the African Diaspora.
