19 Apr Faith & Food Justice Forum II: Fannie Lou Hamer’s Civil and Human Rights Activism
Faith & Food Justice II - Speaker and Resources
Faith & Food Justice Forum, a special event of the Growing Together Program. Together with Rev. Dr. Karen Crozier, we will explore Fannie Lou Hamer’s faith leadership in environmental and racial justice and learn how her legacy can powerfully shape our leadership as creation care advocates in our churches, homes, and communities.
In her seminal book, Fannie Lou Hamer’s Revolutionary Practical Theology, Rev. Dr. Karen Crozier demonstrates how Hamer’s life and leadership profoundly wove civil and human rights, grassroots community organizing, Christian leadership, and a place-based environmental justice into one tapestry of liberative theology in praxis.
