Go Tell It on the Mountain: Perspectives on Black Preaching, Theology & Gospel Music
For more than two decades, the Pruit Memorial Symposium has brought the perspective of the Christian intellectual tradition to contemporary issues of common concern. Since 2013, the experience has complemented and expanded on Baylor’s Black Gospel Music Restoration project as well as the newer Black Preaching Project.
The guest speakers featured in this year’s symposium are experts who emphasize different dimensions of theological and pastoral inquiry. Dr. Dixon McKenzie is the director of the Centre for Black Theology at The Queen’s Foundation for Ecumenical Theological Foundation in Birmingham, U.K. Her research interests include African Caribbean Pentecostalism, Black gospel music and womanist theology. Dr. Lisa Weaver is assistant professor of worship at Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, GA. She previously served at the Catholic University of America and the Howard University School of Divinity. Dr. Carol Tomlin is the principal and director of studies at the Kingdom School of Theology and the apostolic overseer and founder of Restoration Freedom Ministries in Leeds, U.K. Following these presentations, Dr. Monique Ingalls, Associate Professor of Music & Graduate Program Director, Church Music at Baylor University, will moderate a Q&A session.
This virtual event is free and open to the public. Guests can attend a complementary luncheon and live viewing of the event in Jesse H. Jones Library, Room 200, on the campus of Baylor University or participate virtually from anywhere in the world by Zoom. Those interested in attending can visit baylor.edu/pruit to request Zoom credentials or RSVP for the in-person session (required).
