Virtual Brown Bag Colloquium: Viral Faith: Black Young Adults and the Digital Black Church
Dr. Erika Gault, Assistant Professor, Africana Studies at UArizona
November 4, 2020, at 12:30 PM
Statistically speaking, we still “go to church” when we want to learn about Black young adults religious beliefs. Going beyond reductive titles and terms like “millennial” and “high church participation” to describe them, this discussion explores the digital-religious lives young Black people build beyond the Black Church.
A few questions that animate this discussion include: Religiously speaking, how do we make sense of Black young adult movements? What moves Black young adults central concerns and how might this be reshaping religion in America? This talk examines both the history and contemporary manifestations of Black youth and young adult activism in and alongside the Black Church.
