Grace Forum Online with David Kyuman Kim: Radical Love

May 4, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

David Kyuman Kim is a professor of religious studies and American studies, the author of Melancholic Freedom: Agency and the Spirit of Politics and has been called by Cornel West “the leading philosopher of religion and culture of his generation.” He is founder of Radical Love Productions, a media platform dedicated to building a common culture dedicated to social justice and to living our best moral selves.

Each year the cathedral chooses a theme for inspiration and reflection, and in 2022 our theme is connection. Join Dean Malcolm Clemens Young during Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month for a conversation with Kim about cynicism, racism and violence, and the radical love it takes to see the humanity in others and to reach across to bridge that gap.
