Methodist Campus Ministry Spotlight: Glenn Memorial Church Provides Winter Treats for International Students
On Thursday, January 14, members of the Glenn-Emory committee handed out New Year’s goodie bags to international students on campus during the winter break. Thanks so much to Glenn Memorial Church for donating and filling the bags. Each bag contained delicious and healthy snacks, stress balls, and a note from the Emory-Glenn Committee. Here is an excerpt from the note:

Martin Luther King J. Lecture
ODEI Martin Luther King, Jr. Lecture: Legacy and Responsibility
Thursday, January 28, 2021, 4:00-5:30 p.m. EST
MAGGIE ANDERSON, JD, MBA - In 2009, global media covered Maggie Anderson, Congressman John Lewis’ former aide, President Barack Obama’s former law student, and a successful corporate executive, as she lived out her public pledge to “buy Black” only for an entire year. Her family was threatened, and her mother was dying of pancreatic cancer. She took this stand raising two babies and with no Black owned grocery store.
Maggie’s historic year AKA “The Empowerment Experiment” (“EE”) resulted in an unprecedented amount of mainstream media, university, and corporate attention specifically on Black owned businesses, systemic racism in the American economy, and economic inequality; tens of millions in revenue for and deposits into Black businesses and banks; a landmark Kellogg study proving 1 million jobs could be created if Black firms received a small increase in support; and her critically acclaimed book, “Our Black Year”.

Black Women, Black Love
Thursday, February 11, 7:00 p.m-8:00 p.m., Zoom
This is an analysis of social history to examines the complex lineage of America's oppression of Black companionship. According to the 2010 U.S. census, more than seventy percent of Black women in America are unmarried. The book reveals how four centuries of laws, policies, and customs have created that crisis.
Author Dianne Stewart begins in the colonial era, when slave owners denied Blacks the right to marry, divided families, and, in many cases, raped enslaved women and girls. Later, during Reconstruction and the ensuing decades, violence split up couples again as millions embarked on the Great Migration north, where the welfare system mandated that women remain single in order to receive government support.
