    Lecture: Gary Green, Playing the Game

    7:30 PM
    January 25, 2022

    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.


    United’s Faculty Favorite Lecture Series

    Every teacher has one—the lecture that they love the best, the one that they can literally feel in their bones when they deliver it in class. In this series we invite you to get to know United’s current faculty and get a taste of what happens in the classrooms at United. These favorite lectures will be delivered on Zoom, so enjoy it with a family member, invite a far away friend, or host your very own “watch party.” Whatever the format, take this opportunity to learn what it is like to experience the transformative learning experience that happens in the classrooms at United. All lectures are free and open to the public.
