Candler’s Black Church Studies program presents Emilie Townes, Dean and E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Professor of Womanist Ethics and Society at Vanderbilt Divinity School. In her lecture, Townes will explore what she calls “colored orneriness” as a moral ideal that can provide a critical prophetic lens for black communities and churches in the U.S. that suffer and resist relentless systemic oppression.
