*Vann Newkirk II, who was originally scheduled as a featured speaker is unable to attend this year’s conference. The Rev. Dr. Esau McCaulley has generously agreed to offer the third keynote for our live and virtual audiences. We hope to welcome Mr. Newkirk to Baylor in the future, and are grateful for Dr. McCaulley's presence and witness.
ADDITIONAL FEATURED SPEAKERS:
Stephanie Boddie (Baylor University) will screen and discuss her film project “Unfinished Business.” Greg Garrett (Baylor) and Sean Palmer (Ecclesia, Houston) will again explore how film screenings and public conversation can lead your congregations—and your communities—deeper into work on race and reconciliation. Greg will also lead a workshop on racial mythologies drawn from his groundbreaking work funded by the Baugh Foundation. Truett Seminary’s Jared Alcantra and Mariah Humphries will join Sean and Greg in modeling worship and preaching dealing with race and justice. Beth Allison Barr, Truett Dean Todd Still, and Torie Johnson (all from Baylor University) will participate in public conversations with our keynote speakers.
