School of Divinity Annual Nannie Helen Burroughs Lecture

The Feminine in Religious Traditions lecture began in the fall of 1985 as the brainchild of Dr. Lawrence N. Jones, Dean, Howard University School of Divinity (1975-1991). Dr. Jones wanted the lecture to "represent the Divinity School's commitment to raise the level of dialogue about women in ministry to the highest level of scholarship and research." In 2009, the lecture was renamed the Nannie Helen Burroughs Lecture. Born in 1879, Ms. Burroughs was an educator, orator, religious leader, and businesswoman. The lecture is held in March, as part of the celebration of Women's History Month.

The Nannie Helen Burroughs lecturer this year is Dr. Velma Love, author and program director of the Howard University School of Divinity's "Equipping the Saints Project." Prior to her tenure at HUSD, Dr. Love was an Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Florida A&M University, and former Assistant Director of the Institute for Signifying Scriptures at Claremont Graduate University, where she also received her Ph.D. degree. Previously, she served as Project Assistant/Research Associate for the African Americans and the Bible Multi-Disciplinary Project at Union Theological Seminary, where she also received her MDiv degree. Her book, "Divining the Self: A Study in Yoruba Myth and Human Consciousness," was published in fall 2012 by Penn State University Press.
