Rev Simon Jay will explore a theology of identity and highlight common struggles between Black children who have grown up in the care system. He will also touch on ‘Transgenerational Trauma’ and how this idea might help us understand and develop a theology of hope for both Black children and children in care.
The Black Theology Forum is a most important site for the verbal articulation of Black theology in Britain and is recognised as the ‘go to place’ for a monthly encounter of lively, interactive, intellectual, and practical exploration amongst academics, practitioners, and those interested in, or new to Black theology. The forum is hosted by The Centre for Black Theology
(CBT) and chaired by centre director, Dr Dulcie Dixon McKenzie. A guest speaker leads a conversation by way of a formal presentation followed by Q & A which always provides an opportunity to explore in more depth, themes and concepts in Black theology. It is always intentionally a constructive critical conversation on a wide range of topics that merges scholarship and transformative practice.
