“gOD-Talk 2.0: Digital #BlackFaith” is a two-panel discussion with 14 distinguished activists, educators, entertainers, scholars and religious leaders discussing the role of technology and digital innovation in the study and practice of religion and spirituality in the age of COVID-19.
The program amplifies leading millennial voices, including activists, entertainers, academicians and religious leaders by creating a space for their experiences to be shared and documented. “gOD-Talk” also creates an opportunity for religious organizations and leaders, researchers and engaged citizens to understand better the dynamic ways Black millennials engage with religion and spirituality. This year “gOD-Talk” will take place online only and will be an intergenerational (Baby Boomers, Gen X, Millennials and Gen Z) conversation. Previously the program has been produced in the following cities with a live audience: Atlanta, Los Angeles, Chicago and Virginia Beach.
Presented by the museum’s Center for the Study of African American Religious Life (CSAARL), “gOD-Talk” grows out of the Pew Research Center’s ongoing research, showing that a growing number of millennials (individuals born between 1981 and 1996) are moving away from established religious traditions and are identifying more as unaffiliated or spiritual not religious.
