2018 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Religion
African American religion has played an invaluable role in shaping public policy debates in the United States and abroad. A sobering truth, however, emerging from many social justice movements is that legislation cannot combat all dimensions of inequality and prejudice. Many manifestations of inequality and prejudice remain locked behind the steel doors of the most gated house—the human heart. Those doors are often pried open slowly by another persuasive dimension of African American religion—“poetry.” By poetry, we mean various aspirational, symbolic, and artistic expressions not limited by the sometimes deadening exactitude of “policy speak.” This interactive roundtable discussion, sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution’s Center for the Study of African American Religious Life, will feature diverse, religiously-inspired “poetic” performances. These performances will accentuate the significance of embodiment and aesthetics in the epistemologies and social change theories of Africana people.

#1578 President Trump & American Pastors Meet in White House!
In part two of this segment we hear from the pastors that were at the White House meeting with President Donald Trump. As we wrote in the last segment Brianna Bolender had a prophetic dream that President Trump would be used by God to help African American’s to be edified and recognized. We see this taking place with President Trump meeting with many African American pastors from around the nation and he is listening to what is needed in our communities.
Pastor John Gray opens the meeting with President Trump in prayer. Pastor John Ponder, of Family Christian Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, makes the next remarks concerning prison reform, “I echo your sentiments that the work that is being done in the reentry community as a result of prison reform — there are a lot of employers out there right now that are willing to hire people who are coming home from the prison system. One of the things that we’ve learned was that employers are not not willing to hire people; they’re not willing to hire projects. And because of the (inaudible) for the initiatives, when we’re able to help them to be tremendous assets to the employers, and not liabilities, then they’re hiring them all day long. So, we just thank you for the direction that the country is going in, and specifically as our partnerships with law enforcement are beginning to grow. Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department has given us over 60 men and women from the police department that are serving as mentors and trainers for people coming home from the prison system. And I think that is a direct result of the direction that our country is going in. So, I thank you and your administration for the hard work.” It is so great to hear this from Pastor Ponder and being a voice for the voiceless of those that are in prison and giving hope to them. Thank you Pastor Ponder!

Reverend Wilfredo De Jesus, of New Life Covenant Church in Chicago, Illinois shares how thankful he is for President Trump’s help in rebuilding communities. “First of all, let me just say thank you for your boldness. Thank you for taking a stand for those that are disenfranchised. And I want to say that, in the city of Chicago, there are so many pockets that’s not talked about — about revitalization. And I know this is something in your heart, of rebuilding communities. And I look forward to partnering with you and your administration to revitalize the city of Chicago.” Thank you, Reverend De Jesus, for standing up for Chicago!
Pastor Van Moody is next to share. He is from the Worship Center in Birmingham, Alabama. “I just want to continue to underscore what’s already been said. Thank you for your heart for all people, but particularly your leadership on the issue of prison reform and workforce development. Those are two of the biggest issues facing Alabama. A lot of the individuals that we spend a lot of time ministering to are really hard hit in those areas; corporations. That’s the biggest issue right now in Alabama. So thank you for your leadership on this issue.” Pastor Moody we are thankful for you standing up for the Church at the White House!
Bishop Kyle Searcy, of Fresh Anointing House of Worship, in Birmingham, Alabama, shares his gratefulness. “I want to echo all that’s been said. We’re very grateful for your heart toward criminal justice reform, your heart for the urban community. It’s very very amazing. Montgomery, Alabama is a city that’s known for unity and bringing people together. And so many things have come out of that city. And it’s just very encouraging that you have a heart to begin to bring people together, work across the aisle to get things done. Many people on our team pray for you every single day.” Pastor Searcy we are thankful for you representing the Church!

TONIC (VICE’s new health channel) travels to Jackson, Mississippi, one of the hardest hit Southern cities, to investigate why black gay men are getting diagnosed and falling to a disease that can be managed. We’ll discuss issues tied to systematic racial discrimination, such as low income and poverty, lack of access to adequate health care, limited HIV testing and education and stigma attached to the virus. We’ll meet heroic social workers and researchers struggling to bring HIV+ the care they need, as well as HIV+ men who are speaking out about their disease in hopes of changing the stigmas attached to it.
HIV diagnoses in the United States have generally plummeted since the 1980’s, and treatment strategies are now so effective that some are beginning to talk about the end of the AIDS epidemic. However, for gay black men in America, the chances of getting HIV in a lifetime are still one in two. In some Southern states, the rates of infection for black men who have sex with men rival rates in underdeveloped countries like Botswana. Once diagnosed with HIV, these men are unable to access the medicine, clinical resources and psychological support they need to keep life threatening AIDS diagnoses at bay.
