The Rev. Dr. Seretta C. McKnight ’80, founder of the The Black Celestial Choral Ensemble of Syracuse University (BCCE), is our featured guest on Thursday, June 25, at 7 p.m. EST for “Matters that Matter: A Conversation Series from Hendricks Chapel” in conversation with Dean Brian Konkol. Their discussion will focus on the living legacy of the BCCE at Syracuse University, and how gospel choirs can serve as change-agents for social justice. This will be the fifth installment of “Matters that Matter.”
The Black Celestial Choral Ensemble (BCCE) at Hendricks Chapel has served as an important part of the Syracuse University community for over 40 years. Operating in the tradition of African-American gospel choirs, the BCCE provides students at Syracuse University with an opportunity to partake in spiritual enrichment and worship, enjoy a culturally relevant Christian community and share faith through collective song.
This conversation will broadcast on Facebook Live on Hendricks Chapel‘s Facebook page. This event is free and open to all. For questions please contact Hendricks Chapel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
