Men of the Cloth: Black Masculinity & Spirituality

Sunday, February 19, 2017, 2-4pm, Elinor Hooker Williams Tea Talk – Join Us!

Black Masculinity & Spirituality, Portsmouth NH

Free and open to the public

Church has historically been seen as the backbone of the Black community and the center of political and social life for African Americans. This panel discussion, featuring prominent local pastors, will discuss the role of the church in their lives; the impact of racism on Black masculinity; their personal journey as Black men ministering in a predominantly white state; and ways to construct an alternative expression of masculinity that is connected with emotion and spirit, self-determinism, accountability, family, and pride.

Rev. Robert Thompson, Rev. Authur Hilson, Rev. Robert Humphreys
