2018 Grawemeyer Lecture, April 10, 2018
On Tuesday, April 10, 2018, the Rev. Dr. JoAnne Marie Terrell, Associate Professor of Theology, Ethics and the Arts at Chicago Theological Seminary, presented the 2018 Grawemeyer Religion Award lecture at Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. Terrell’s lecture focused on the 2018 Grawemeyer Religion Award-winning book, "The Cross and the Lynching Tree," which was written by renowned theologian James H. Cone. In "The Cross and the Lynching Tree" (Orbis Books, 2011), Cone passionately conjoins the provocative images of the first-century cross and the twentieth-century lynching tree. An ordained elder in the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church, Terrell is a former doctoral student of Cone. She is also the author of "Power in the Blood?: The Cross in the African American Experience" (Wipf and Stock 2005).
