Virtual forum on Black Lives Matter

Caribbean Theology Conference Today (CTCT) is hosting its second virtual forum Black Lives Matter: Caribbean Theological Perspectives on Thursday July 16 at 7 p.m.

Presenters will share theological, personal perspectives on the controversial, sensitive, and little reflected-upon topic.

Rev Dr Sonia Hinds, of the Anglican Diocese, Barbados will discuss institutional racism within the established Church in the Barbadian context; Dr Alison McLetchie, will give the perspective of the Caribbean diaspora living and working in the United States; and Fr Stephan Alexander focuses on the impact of racism from the generation post-1970s Black Power Revolution.

Presenters were invited to peruse the editorial ‘Race and Racism in the Caribbean: So Many Knees on So Many Necks’ but could engage the issue from any vantage point they chose. 

Participants will be invited to engage in a discussion following the presentations by putting forward comments/questions after presentations.

Members of the public are invited to register online. CLICK HERE

There is limited space as the forum is limited to the first 100 persons.

The CTCT Secretariat hopes the forum provides a much-needed space to profoundly engage in reflections of this historic experience.

The idea of hosting forums during the ‘in-between’ period of the CTCT’s bi-annual conferences stemmed from a desire expressed by several conference participants that a space was needed to reflect theologically on pertinent issues.
