Baltimore is a religiously diverse and racially segregated city. It has been described by Dr. Lawrence Brown as a Black Butterfly and a White L in which “the white neighborhoods on the map that form the shape of an 'L' accumulate structured advantages, while black neighborhoods, shaped in the form of a butterfly, accumulate structured disadvantages.” Religious leaders and communities in the city have been both supporters of this disparity and active opponents to the racial inequality. In this Humanities in the Village event we will introduce the topic of religion and segregation in Baltimore, provide a few examples of contemporary religious movements that seek to eliminate racial inequality, and discuss the potential benefits of and concerns with collaborations between scholars of religion and community partners for addressing the most pressing issues in the city.
