Celebrating Black Joy

Join the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago (LSTC) in Celebrating Black Joy during Black History Month (February). A wide range of virtual events will touch the mind, body and spirit through worship, academic discussions, poetry, artwork, and song. All events are open to the public with registration to receive the Zoom links.

“So often, Black people are invited to teach others through the lens of their pain. This Black History Month let us explore the resilience of the Black people through the intricacy of Black joy,” said Sharei Green, a Master of Divinity (MDiv) student at LSTC. She and Stephen Styles, also a LSTC MDiv student, led planning for this year’s celebration.
