Black Domers: Black Spirituality

“Recent events in our nation have led to a national reckoning, to soul-searching and a demand for action with regard to racial and social injustice…There is a widespread sense of urgency to come together, to take meaningful action to achieve a more just and equitable society. Accompanying the urgency is a sense of hope that now is the moment for constructive and lasting change.” – Advancing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Notre Dame: A Strategic Framework, June 2021

Explore the ways our faith journeys can offer a path to healing, liberation and fulfillment, particularly when expressed according to the culture and traditions of a people rich with spiritual gifts. Alumni Relations Director of the Black Alumni of Notre Dame, LaDawn Burnett ’12 J.D. moderates a conversation between Rev. Hugh Page, Vice President for Institutional Transformation and Advisor to the President, and Dr. Jacqueline Rivers, member of the Board of Advisors of Notre Dame Law School’s Religious Liberty Initiative, who will discuss the faith experience of Black people and how faith influences our response to socioeconomic and social justice issues. They will also touch on the intersection of racial justice, religious freedom, and the Black church. Join us as we bridge the spiritual with the practical.
