The Garaventa Center invites all faculty, staff, students, and the public to a free lecture, “Amazing Grace: Diversity, Deep Listening, and the Anatomy of a Song,” presented by Christopher Pramuk, on Wednesday, March 20, at 7:15 p.m., in Franz Hall room 120.
Pramuk, who serves as chair of Ignatian Thought and Imagination at Regis University, presents the remarkable story of one-time slave trader John Newton, the composer of the song “Amazing Grace,” as a portal into the struggle for diversity and inclusion in the U.S. and beyond. He will also explore the many beautiful and often painful ways that grace can break open our social horizons, from the classroom to the political realm to our efforts to create a truly diverse and welcoming environment on university campuses. Pramuk is the author of Hope Sings, So Beautiful: Graced Encounters Across the Color Line.
