On February 24 and 25, 2017, Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, inBCS Handspartnership with Quinn Chapel AME Church, will host the seminary’s 2017 Black Church Studies Consultation. Mass Incarceration and Restorative Justice: Understanding and Response is the theme for this year’s consultation, which will feature scholars, faith leaders and social justice advocates who will address the complexities of the issues of mass incarceration and how this can be incorporated into the worship and ethical life of the church. Workshops from practitioners and plenary session leaders will provide real-life working models and tools that can help churches begin to develop ministries to respond to these issues. Renowned social justice advocate Harold Dean Trulear is among the 20 community and faith leaders featured at the event.
