Squaring the Womanist Circle! at Union Presbyterian Seminary
The Squaring the Womanist Circle Project integrates and translates Black women’s religious scholarship, creative expression and cultural work into transformative wisdom. It is a launching pad for a continuing Centere for Womanist Leadership at Union Presbyterian Seminary.
Project directors are Katie G. Cannon, Professor of Christian Ethics at Union Presbyterian Seminary; Angela D. Sims, Assistant Professor of Ethics and Black Church Studies at Saint Paul School of Theology (Kansas City, MO); and Paula Owens Parker, Adjunct Assistant Professor of Spiritual Formation at Union Presbyterian Seminary.
Squaring the Womanist Circle initiates multi-voice-conversations among diverse groups of women of African descent to explore and address the lived concerns of African American girls and women. The project will give voice to women working for justice from a theological framework, sending an important and timely signal to the broader community that Black women of faith are committed to discerning new ways to focus on the well-being of women and girls in a mutli-religious world.
The initiative has been awarded a three-year grant from the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation. Education, particularly graduate theological educational institutions, is of particular interest to the Foundation.
