A two-day symposium at Davidson College will take place March 13-14, 2019, and will feature a series of events engaging Davidson students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members in conversation about the ethical commitments, theological spirit, and moral character of the Reformed faith, and how Reformed theology and ethics shape our larger society.

The symposium begins on Wednesday afternoon with a lecture by Dr. John Kuykendall at 4:30 p.m., followed by a panel discussion.

Taylor Branch, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of America in the King Years, a narrative history of the civil rights era, will deliver the Symposium’s keynote lecture entitled “To Redeem the Soul of America: MLK and the Audacity of Faith” on Wednesday, March 13, 2019, at 8 p.m. in Duke Family Performance Hall. The public is welcome; no tickets are required. 

The symposium wraps up on Thursday with two panel discussions beginning at 9:30. All symposium events (with the exception of the keynote) will be held in the C. Shaw Smith 900 Room in the Alvarez College Union. The keynote will be held in the Duke Family Performance Hall.
