The 16th Annual | 2023 CLGS John E. Boswell Lecture with Rev. Dr. Pamela Lightsey
Rev. Dr. Pamela Lightsey: "The Big Lie and Its Old Hatred."
The 16th Annual 2023 CLGS John E. Boswell ONLINE Lecture.
American politics has long been a challenging system for its Black citizens. The fight to keep Black people from voting is a long and violent part of the American political and religious landscape. More recently in our history – with the push for marriage equality and abortion rights – the survival of Black families has become a wedge issue in major political campaigns. This lecture focuses on the ways Black queer bodies are used to leverage the aspirations of political candidates, church leaders, and power elites. It will demonstrate the ways the big lie – propaganda – is damaging the gains made during the civil and LGBTQ rights movements. While its primary focus will be the lives of Black queer women, this lecture will spotlight why all persons who believe in freedom and liberation must see this old hatred as a danger to all humanity.
