About this Event
gOD-Talk: A Black Millennials and Faith Conversation Series is a groundbreaking seven-city conversation series spearheaded by the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture Center for the Study of African American Religious Life in association with Pew Research Center. 

Millennials are finding and creating new spaces to have different kinds of conversations that are not offered in traditional religious contexts. This interactive conversation series featuring leading millennials voices—activists, entertainers, entrepreneurs, athletes, academicians, religious leaders, politicians, etc.—seeks to amplify these voices by creating a space for their experiences to be shared and documented. These curated conversations seek to not only give voice to this often misunderstood demographic but also to create an opportunity for religious organizations and leaders, researchers, and engaged citizens to understand better the dynamic ways Black millennials engage with religion.

About the Center for the Study of African American Religious Life:
By promoting innovative scholarship, producing public programs, and collecting religious artifacts, the Center for the Study of African American Religious Life (CSAARL) at the National Museum of African American History and Culture examines diverse historical and contemporary African American religious practices and beliefs. The intertwining of religion and race is a notable feature of African American experience. Equipping the public with a sophisticated understanding of this intertwining is a contribution toward a more enlightened and compassionate world.
