    Lecture: Gary Green, Playing the Game

    7:30 PM

    Playing the Game: Problems and Possibilities for Black Men in the United States
    Gary Green, Assistant Professor of Pastoral Theology and Social Transformation

    This lecture captures my current effort as a scholar and a Black man to understand what is necessary for Black men in the United States to survive and flourish. I analyze the intersecting politics of race, class, gender, and sexuality as they relate to our unique struggles, focusing specifically on the connection between historical myths, political circumstances, and the relational re-creation of a society designed to undercut Black men’s attempts to survive and flourish at every level. Despite this cultural onslaught, however, I find unexpected pockets of hope that offer possibilities for new futures to be created where all can survive and flourish.
