A Call for Justice

From Kenyon-

Kenyon’s annual “Day of Dialogue” celebration of Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy will feature as keynote speaker an advocate in issues of social justice, racial reconciliation, immigration and marriage equality. The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry, the presiding bishop and primate of the Episcopal Church, will deliver a livestreamed address on Monday, Jan. 15, at 3 p.m. in Rosse Hall.

Curry, a high-energy and dynamic speaker, was installed as the first African American head of the Episcopal Church in November 2015. As presiding bishop, Curry has led the church in its renewed commitment to work toward racial justice and reconciliation.

In a March 2016 interview with The New York Times, Curry discussed this work: “Rather than creating just another program, we said we have got to go deeper. Because laws can change behavior, and must change behavior, but laws don’t change hearts. We’ve got to be about the work of changing and transforming hearts. And that happens by deepening real sustained relationships, and listening to and telling and sharing of our life stories.”
