Dharma and Justice Dialogues: Black Buddhists and the Black Radical Tradition

Join us on Monday, April 11 at 7:00 pm ET for our final Dharma and Justice Dialogues of the Spring semester. Dr. Rima Vesely-Flad and Dr. Toni Pressley-Sanon will gather virtually to discuss Dr. Vesely-Flad’s newly released publication, Black Buddhists and the Black Radical Tradition: The Practice of Stillness in the Movement for Liberation.

RSVP TODAY

They will also explore themes of Blackness, gender, and sexuality within Dharma practice and communities.  Engaging the work of Black Buddhist teachers, they will together examine the distinct contributions of contemporary writers, as well as luminaries such as James Baldwin and Audre Lorde, whose essays clarify historical teachings on suffering, impermanence, compassion, and sensuality.

This program is offered from the Thích Nhất Hạnh Program for Engaged BuddhismASL Interpretation provided!
