About this event

Part 3 of a 3-Part Series

Join us for an evening conversation between our Pastor Dr. Daymond Glenn and special guest Dr. J. Kameron Carter as they discuss the need for the church to have a comprehensive understanding of race, culture, ideology, and more when ministering to the needs of People of Color in inner-city urban America.

The Cultural Soul Project is a new Church in Portland, Oregon dedicated to addressing the needs of People of Color in inner-city urban America through the lens of the African-American experience, and our ministry exists at the intersections of race, faith, hip-hop, and justice.

Our special guest Dr. J. Kameron Carter is Professor of Religious Studies and Co-Director of the Center for Religion and the Human at Indiana University Bloomington. Dr. Carter works at the intersection of questions of race and the current ecological ravaging of the earth. In 2008, Dr. Carter published a book titled Race: A Theological Account, and in 2013 he edited a special issue of the journal South Atlantic Quarterly called Religion and the Future of Blackness. More recently, Dr. Carter has just finished a book manuscript that interprets white supremacy not simply as vile individual acts; rather, Carter brings white supremacy, if not whiteness as such, into view as a planetary structure and practice of political theology. And lastly, Dr. Carter is in the final stages of completing another book project that considers an alternative version or genre of the sacred, one uncoupled from the paradigm of nation-states and thus the racially gendered logics of sovereignty.

Ticket entry to this event is on a first come, first served basis while seats last.

Doors open at 6:00pm.
