PREMIERE OF JOURNEY TO LIBERATION: THE LEGACY OF WOMANIST THEOLOGY AND ETHICS AT UNION THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY
A SOCIAL AND SPIRITUAL LOOK AT FEMALE THEOLOGIANS AND ETHICISTS OF AFRICAN DESCENT

Mon, 7 Apr, 2014 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Short (8 min) Preview of Journey to Liberation: The Legacy of Womanist Theology and Ethics at Union Theological Seminary

On Monday, April 7, Union Theological Seminary will premier Journey to Liberation, a 50-minute documentary on the founding of Womanist theology, an African-American feminist liberation movement.

Filmmaker Anika Gibbons takes a deeper look at the radical spirituality and scholarship within the lives of the founding mothers of Womanist theology and Womanist ethics. She focuses on their significance as figures in African-American theology and history, and on the role played by Union in that founding.

Through interviews with Dr. Emilie Townes, Dr. Jacquelyn Grant, Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas and Dr. Katie Cannon, and current Union students, the film takes viewers from the genesis to the evolution and the impact of Womanist theology and ethics. Interviews are candid, reflective, light-filled, heart-filled, and intellectually stimulating. These founding mothers are asked to discuss their life experiences, their road to black womanhood, the role Union Theological Seminary played on their road to scholarship, and their continuing journey through the establishment and evolution of Womanist methodology, Womanist theology, and Womanist ethics.

6:00 p.m. Reception
7:00 p.m. Premier
8:00 p.m. Panel Discussion
Panelists: Dr. Katie Cannon, Dr. Teresa Delgado,Dr. Jaquelyn Grant, Professor Sonia Sanchez, and others
