In collaboration with the Office of Black Church Studies and the Divinity Women’s Center, the Office of Admissions will host Students of Color Visit Day on March 16-17 and Women in Ministry Day on March 23-24.

The Office of Black Church Studies will hold its annual Durham Pilgrimage of Pain and Hope in which divinity students can learn the rich history of the racially diverse Durham, N.C., community and critically engage in the lives of Durham residents. Students also will hear the stories of the faithful but painful struggle of becoming the church in the American South.

The pilgrimage is led by Joy J. Moore, associate dean for Black Church Studies and Church Relations at Duke Divinity School. The two and a half day event includes walking tours of historic sites, worship, testimony, and reflection. Meals will be provided. First year students can receive credit from this retreat for their spring spiritual formation requirement.
