Exchange ideas, renew your spirit and connect with others in a diverse, multifaith community
The Center for Religious and Spiritual Life is a center of diverse cultural and religious learning and expression, spiritual development, hospitality and community engagement. We aim to increase student knowledge and engagement with intersections of religion and world affairs and to provide support and guidance to students as they wrestle with questions of meaning, faith and purpose.
Film and Discussion: Get Out
- Weinstein Auditorium, 7:30-10:30 p.m.
Get Out (Jordan Peele, 2017) “exposes a liberal ignorance and hubris that has been allowed to fester. It's an attitude, an arrogance which in the film leads to a horrific final solution, but in reality leads to a complacency that is just as dangerous” (Lanre Bakare, The Guardian). Facilitated by Elizabeth Stordeur Pryor, assistant professor of history; co-sponosred by the Student Event Committee.
Black Feminist Queer Immigrant Love Poems
