  • On Being Discussions featuring Darnell Moore, Vincent Harding, Imani Perry, and Desmond Tutu 5:00pm - 6:00pm: On Being Discussions on Race & Healing
    A weekly discussion group for students, staff, and faculty from all three campuses focusing on different On Being podcasts (onbeing.org) from primarily Black voices. Engage the topic of race and healing and work toward justice. Listen to the podcast or read the transcript beforehand, and then gather together around the virtual dinner table to discuss, connect, and act.


    Oct. 28: Darnell Moore, “Self-Reflection and Social Evolution”

    “Darnell Moore says honest, uncomfortable conversations are a sign of love — and that self-reflection goes hand-in-hand with culture shift and social evolution. A writer and activist, he’s grown wise through his work on successful and less successful civic initiatives, including Mark Zuckerberg’s plan to remake the schools of Newark, New Jersey, and he is a key figure in the ongoing, under-publicized, creative story of The Movement for Black Lives.” - Krista Tippett

November 4th, 2020

  • On Being Discussions featuring Darnell Moore, Vincent Harding, Imani Perry, and Desmond Tutu 5:00pm - 6:00pm: On Being Discussions on Race & Healing

    Gather for a special optional two-hour discussion for students, staff, and faculty from all three Lewis & Clark campuses. We will spend from 5-6pm the Wednesday evening after the election guided by the wisdom of the late Vincent Harding, who was the chairperson of the Veterans of Hope Project at the Iliff School of Theology in Denver. Listen to the podcast or read the transcript beforehand, and then gather together around the virtual dinner table to discuss and connect. Harding said in the interview with Tippett, “How do we work together? How do we talk together in ways that will open up our best capacities and our best gifts? My own feeling that I try to share again and again, Krista, is that when it comes to creating a multiracial, multiethnic, multireligious, democratic society, we are still a developing nation.”

    Whoever wins the presidential election, Harding’s question calls out to us all in 2020: How do we work together? How do we talk together in ways that will open up our best capacities and our best gifts?

    For those who wish, we can continue the conversation for an additional hour. Stay for as little or as long as you like. 

    Nov. 4: Vincent Harding, “Is America Possible?”

    “Vincent Harding was wise about how the vision of the civil rights movement might speak to 21st-century realities. He reminded us that the movement of the ’50s and ’60s was spiritually as well as politically vigorous; it aspired to a “beloved community,” not merely a tolerant integrated society. He pursued this through patient-yet-passionate cross-cultural, cross-generational relationships. And he posed and lived a question that is freshly in our midst: Is America possible?” - Krista Tippett

    Facilitated by Hilary Martin Himan, Office of Spiritual Life
