Park City Museum will host an in-person lecture called Approaches to Black Freedom: Race, Gender, and Radicalism given by Joseph Stuart on Wednesday, November 16th from 5-6 p.m. at the Education and Collections Center located at 2079 Sidewinder Drive. Please register for the lecture below.
The Black Freedom Movement is often seen as dominated by male Christians, but history reveals that’s not the case. In this lecture, Joseph Stuart examines different forms of activism practiced by three Black freedom leaders, taking a closer look at how ideas about race, gender, religion, and bodies shaped Malcolm X’s, Fannie Lou Hamer’s, and Martin Luther King, Jr.’s approaches to achieving Black freedom in the United States and abroad.
Joseph Stuart earned his PhD at the University of Utah in American history and studies the relationship of race, religion, and the state in the twentieth-century Black freedom movement. Now a postdoctoral fellow at BYU’s Neal A. Maxwell Institute, his award-winning work has been published in Religion and Politics, Church History: Studies in Christianity and Culture, and in the Salt Lake Tribune.
