PANEL: Race, Religion & #BlackLivesMatter in the Post-Obama Era

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We hear from experts about how the #BlackLivesMatter movement has and will shape American discourse and policy, including after the first African-American president leaves office. How has it compared to the influence of the civil rights movement, which was deeply connected to black churches? If it is happening mostly outside the walls of the church, is the church catching up to it or has it been left behind?
