About the Event

The purpose of the Hesed  lectureship at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary is to promote  awareness and church involvement in the area of social justice, thus  enabling hesed,  which is Hebrew for love in action. The Hesed lectureship was a  grassroots effort started by Austin Seminary students of the (then)  African American Student Group and Hispanic Student Association in 2014  to bring scholars from black, LatinX, and other marginalized  communities to Austin Seminary’s campus. These voices had been  under-represented in other lecture series on campus and students hoped  their voices would deepen the community’s conversations in response to  issues of justice.
