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.
The BTF usually convenes online on the fourth Thursday during term time, and admission is free. Anyone who identifies as Black and Asian is welcome to attend.
