In collaboration with the Voice and Voicelessness Project, UNISA, the Transatlantic Roundtable on Religion and Race will be sponsoring a conference, July 10-16, 2014, in Praetoria, South Africa, investigating “Social Struggle and Faith-Based Activism in ‘Black Empowerment’ Times.”

The 2014 conference theme continues TRRR’s emphasis on enduring social struggle as a feature of uneven social progress throughout the transatlantic region, as characterized by: (1) sharp educational and economic disparities across racial, social class, and national lines; (2) oppression and abuse of women; (3) sexual and war-related exploitation of children; (4) internecine violence and conflict between population groups already facing steep economic and political development challenges; (5) mass incarceration and social marginalization of low-income youth; and (6) leadership sectors whose policies and practices too often are at variance with the social urgencies of the day.

The deadline for submitting papers has already passed, but please do pass on information about this conference to anyone you know who may be interested in attending.  Full details may be found on the flyer:
