The ELCA celebrates Black History Month every February to recognize and honor the history and contributions of Black Lutherans. This year, African Descent Ministries of the ELCA is celebrating with season two of Talks at the Desk, a video series that explores diverse expressions of the church.
Join them live on YouTube each Wednesday this month at 8:30 PM to hear youth, young adults, rostered leaders, elders, and friends of the community as they share their stories, achievements, and accomplishments in faith, justice, education, and service. If you can't join their live sessions, you can watch all their videos on the ELCA YouTube channel.
Additionally, the ELCA has committed to the work of dismantling racism through education, training, and advocacy. This work is done through partnerships with organizations such as the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Philadelphia and the Black Clergy Caucus of the ELCA. It’s important to recognize the rich history of Black Lutherans in the ELCA and celebrate their lasting impact on our church and society.
