Religious studies scholars at Georgia State University and Spelman College have received a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation to develop digital and physical archives to highlight Black women religious leaders’ contributions to religious communities and activism in the United States.
Monique Moultrie, associate professor of religious studies at Georgia State, and Rosetta Ross, professor of religious studies at Spelman College, are co-principal investigators on the three-year project, which kicks off in January.
The project, named The Garden Initiative for Black Women’s Religious Activism, will also include an intergenerational mentorship program, an oral history project, an international scholarly conference and a special journal issue. The Luce Foundation has granted $250,000 for the effort to advance public understanding of race, justice and religion.
