Remembering Dr. Cain Hope Felder

Homegoing services for Dr. Cain Hope Felder were held on Saturday, October 19th at Cramton Auditorium.

Thank you to all the HUSD student volunteers who served at Dr. Felder’s homegoing service. And thank you to all the faculty, staff, students, and alumni who were able to participate or attend. HUSD has been a comfort to the Felder family during this time of bereavement.

Theology and Racialized Policing Cohort Program

Communities of color are under alarming threat today as black men and women are disproportionately targeted by a broken criminal justice system, which is the product of a centuries long historical process of institutional racism. Police shootings of unarmed people of color have created a crisis in this nation and we believe the church has a responsibility to respond.

Sojourners, in partnership with the Howard University School of Divinity and the Christian Community Development Association (CCDA), presents the Theology and Racialized Policing Cohort Program.
