LECTURES

Lecture I - Epistemology Over Ontology: How Whiteheadian Metaphysics Revolutionizes Constructive Black Theology

Classical black theologies focus on a notion of ontological blackness that describes God and Jesus as black. The divine is “black” in its alignment with and resistance to black suffering. This lecture will look at how Whiteheadian notions of subjective immortality offer a non-Kantian epistemology. Such an epistemological emphasis both revolutionizes classical theological loci and lifts up new core categories for constructive black theologies.

Lecture II - Monday Through Friday Faith: How Process Theology Restored My Faith

Many Christians maintain a Newtonian understanding of God and the world on Sundays, while living in a quantum universe during the week. I’ll discuss how process theological insights on divine incarnation, suffering and evil offer a faith that resonates with contemporary experiences in the world.
