Cannon, Williams, and Womanist Survival

Cannon, williams, and womanist survival

“All four founders of womanist theology earned doctoral degrees at Union Theological Seminary in the 1980s or early 1990s— Jacquelyn Grant, Katie G. Cannon, Delores S. Williams, and Kelly Brown Douglas. Though they were too spread out from each other to have taken classes together, these womanist founders worked together and supported each other, defying the competitive ethos of the academy. They wrote about seeking wholeness in one’s life, being attuned to the God within, working for justice, and building peaceable communities that enable all people to flourish.” – Union faculty member Rev. Dr. Gary Dorrien in Harvard Divinity School Bulletin
