Throughout our history in the Americas, African Americans have entrenched/devoted themselves in/to issues of justice and engagement. The 5th Annual Black Religion & Spirituality (BRS) Conference, to be held in East Lansing, Michigan, October 13-15, 2010, affords opportunities to explore these issues in a public forum. The theme is Black Religion and Spirituality: Implications for Social Justice and Community Engagement.
