Mihee Kim-Kort was selected to be in the first cohort for “Religion and Racial Justice: Expanding the Moral Imaginary through Film,” funded by the Henry Luce Foundation and convened by the Rev. Dr. Dean Kelly Brown Douglas of Episcopal Divinity School at Union Theological Seminary. The grant will fund a two-year program that will bring together a cohort of scholars, faith leaders, activists, and artists of color to explore religion and racial justice through the lens of film.
This cohort will convene monthly to reflect on films that engage the topics of religion and race. Through these meetings, the program will allow members to build connections, support one another’s ongoing work, and coordinate current and future efforts at combating racial and social injustice. Collaborative work among the cohort will be further incentivized and supported by a select number of microgrants.
