Black and Buddhist: A Book Discussion

August 4 @ 7:45 pm - 9:00 pm

The Rime Center’s Social Justice Committee is proud to sponsor a 4 week discussion on Black and Buddhist. We will be discussing the book Black and Buddhist, which brings together a powerful collection of writings from African American teachers who are from all the major Buddhist traditions, as they tell their stories of how race and Buddhist practice have intersected in their lives. The resulting explorations display not only the promise of Buddhist teachings to empower those facing racial discrimination but also the way that Black Buddhist voices are enriching the Dharma for all practitioners.

As the first anthology comprised solely of writings by African-descended Buddhist practitioners, this book is an important contribution to the development of the Dharma in the West. With contributions by Acharya Gaylon Ferguson, Cheryl A. Giles, Gyōzan Royce Andrew Johnson, Ruth King, Kamilah Majied, Lama Rod Owens, Lama Dawa Tarchin Phillips, Sebene Selassie, and Pamela Ayo Yetunde.
