Join the Kroc Institute for a book launch of Professor Emmanuel Katongole's latest book, Who Are My People?: Love, Violence, and Christianity in Sub-Saharan Africa (Notre Dame Press, 2022).
In Who Are My People?, Fr. Emmanuel Katongole explores the ethnic, religious, and ecological violence of African modernity and shares the inspiring stories of Christian individuals who have overcome these fault lines by nurturing new forms of community. This event will feature a panel conversation on modern violence and the kind of prophetic visions that can lead us towards positive peace and integral ecology.
This event will be followed by a reception in the Great Hall. Both the events are free and open to the public.
