“Womanist Ways of Being & Knowing: Understanding Survival As a Theological Virtue in Alice Walker’s The Color Purple.”
Thursday, February 4, 6 p.m., Via Zoom
Our speaker will be Rev. Dr. Michele Watkins. “Womanist” is a term first coined by Alice Walker in her exposition of the sacred inner lives of Southern Black Women, focusing on the spiritual principles of self-love, love of the Spirit, survival, and wholeness. This lecture considers the meaning of moral virtue and the theo-ethical significance of survival within a context of cultural and intimate partner violence.
