The 4th Annual Canisius Academy Lecture - Olga Segura - "Birth of a Movement: Black Lives Matter and the Catholic Church"

Date: 03-10-2021

Time: 07:30 PM

Location: Zoom - Webinar

Presented by the Canisius Academy and co-sponsored by the Center for Catholic Studies at Fairfield University, Olga M. Segura will virtually deliver the fourth annual Canisius Academy Lecture, based on her just-published book, Birth of a Movement: Black Lives Matter and the Catholic Church. 

Please join us at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 10, Segura will explain how major events in 2020 — the pandemic, and the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and others — transformed her message into an urgent wake-up for Catholics and a radical call to dignity and equality for all people. She will examine the founding of the Black Lives Matter movement and the Church’s history of systemic racism, and offer ways that the Church can move forward through the discomfort of authentic self-reckoning.
