Congrats to Xavier and Michael for their labor and vision to create this project. Xavier is a friend of mine from Westminster Seminary whose been working hard and long on creating partnerships with seminary’s for African American students and more. I’m so thrilled to see their dream begin to be realized. X you rock man!!

Here’s a quick info blurb on RBA and this project:  

Reformed Blacks of America, Inc. (RBA) is pleased to announce in partnership with Reformed Theological Seminary – Orlando (RTS-Orlando) the creation of the African-American Imagination and Theology Project. The African American Imagination and Theology Project with its corresponding scholarships seeks to unearth and impregnate a generation of Black seminal thinkers to reflect upon and interact with the experiences, thoughts and lives of Black people and the world theologically.

We are thoroughly excited about the creative energy taking place. Several students who are enrolled in RTS-Orlando from across the country are already participants in this project. For those interested in biblio-critical thought and desire to be a constructive agent in the theological and cultural landscape, the African-American Imagination and Theology Project is for you!”
