Rev. Dr. Randall C. Bailey, Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Hebrew Bible at Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta, presents the CLGS Fall Lecture on Thursday, October 16, at 6:30 pm, in the Badè Museum on the PSR campus. A reception will precede the event, at 5:30 pm.

Bailey is an ordained Baptist minister and holds his membership at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, where he was licensed and ordained. He concentrates on the relationship of Ancient Africa and the Hebrew Bible and he specializes in ideological criticism, especially as regards the intersections of race, gender, class, sex, sexuality, nationality, and power in the biblical text.
