Dr. Taylor and Rev. Dease will examine how the Black Church has been an important institutional force in the political landscape of the African American community. Preceding their talk will be an hour of additional activities, including City Tech Professor Diane Wilson speaking on the origins of Black Solidarity Day and a performance by the City Tech Choir and by students in City Tech’s “Black Theater” class.
