The Bucknell Institute for Lifelong Learning (BILL) will present a Lunch and Learn program featuring Professor Carol Wayne White, religious studies, on Thursday, May 5, at noon at the Village Common, 6 Tressler Blvd., in Lewisburg.

Doors open at 11:30 a.m., and this event is open to the public. Beverages and light dessert are provided free of charge. Attendees may bring their own lunch or purchase a soup-and-salad lunch for $6 by contacting the BILL office at 570-522-0105 or at, prior to noon on May 4. The lunch menu for this event features an eggplant and asparagus wrap and cream of potato soup.

The title of this talk is "Black Lives and Sacred Humanity: Toward an African-American Religious Naturalism." White will present ideas around the concept of sacred humanity, which offers new ways to understand a theme of traditional religiousity, an effort to find meaningful existence amid culturally coded racist rhetoric and practices. She will also trace these concepts in works of three major African-American intellectuals of the early and mid-20th century: Anna Julia Cooper, W.E.B. Dubois and James Baldwin.
