Amazing Grace: Diversity, Deep Listening & the Anatomy of a Song

Christopher Pramuk, PhD, Chair of Ignatian Thought and Imagination at Regis University, presents the remarkable story of one-time slave trader John Newton, the composer of the song “Amazing Grace,” as a portal into the struggle for diversity and inclusion in the US and beyond, 3-20-19. Pramuk, the author of Hope Sings, So Beautiful: Graced Encounters Across the Color Line, explores the many beautiful and often painful ways that grace can break open our social horizons, from the classroom to the political realm to our efforts to create a truly diverse and welcoming environment on our university campuses.
