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 two and half hour 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. The gOD Talk series will be piloted on Friday, August 24, 2018 at the California African American Museum in Los Angeles, California and kick-off officially on January 26, 2019 on the campus of Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia. ** Please note that this event will take place in Los Angeles, California
