Winter 2002


On March 27, the College of Liberal Arts & Education and University Ministry will host a lecture by Joseph Brown, S.J., professor and director of the Black American Studies Program at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, who will speak on “Theology of the Spirituals & Their Message For Us Today.”

Brown is a nationally-recognized leader in the African-American Catholic community, a well-known speaker, and the author of To Stand on the Rock: Meditations on Black Catholic Identity.

He will be accompanied by a Gospel Choir performing the pieces which he will discuss in his lecture. This promises to be an exciting, enriching, encouraging, and uplifting event for the whole city of Detroit.
