Join us at the Interfaith Human Library on Oct. 24 in Falvey’s Speakers’ Corner

Please join us on Tuesday, Oct. 24, from 4:30-6 p.m. in Falvey Library’s Speakers’ Corner for the Interfaith Human Library.

In this library you can check out human “books”—faculty/staff/community members of diverse backgrounds (Baha’i, Buddhist, Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, Secular, Sikh, and more) to learn more about how they experience their faith/worldview identity. Small groups of students will meet with a different speaker for three 20-minute sessions. Curiosity is the only pre-requisite for this unique conversation opportunity!


This ACS-approved event is co-sponsored by Campus Ministry, the Department of Theology and Religious Studies, and Falvey Library. It is open to Villanova faculty, staff, and students (both undergraduate and graduate). Light refreshments will be served.



Rev. Naomi Washington-Leapheart on “A Womanist Path to Ending White Christian America” on 3/29

Please join us on Wednesday, March 29, from 12-1:30 p.m. in Falvey Library’s Speakers’ Corner for a workshop titled, “A Womanist Path to Ending White Christian America” featuring Rev. Naomi Washington-Leapheart. 

The recent murders of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Daunte Wright, and Patrick Lyoya, and others are only the latest episodes in a brutal history of racial violence in this country — racial violence that is the consequence of a white supremacist system. A troubling part of that reality is that white supremacy is grounded in Christian history, texts, ideas, and institutions. Is Christian faith possible apart from anti-Blackness? In this session, we will explore this question as we contemplate the meaning of the end of “White Christian America.” We will study the liberative possibilities found in womanist theology, a discourse developed by Black women.
This session will be facilitated by Rev. Naomi Washington-Leapheart. Reverend Naomi is an ordained minister, justice advocate, public administrator, and adjunct professor of Theology and Religious Studies at Villanova University.
This ACS-approved event, co-sponsored by Falvey Library, Center for Peace and Justice Education, and Theology and Religious Studies, is free and open to the public. A light lunch will be served.
