Pendle Hill | May 2018

After spending six weeks at Pendle Hill working on his memoirs, Hal presented a talk entitled: "Black Fire: An African American Quaker Seeker-Activist in a White Supremacist Nation." The talk encompassed aspects of Hal's life that will be discussed in his upcoming memoirs, such as his transnational diplomacy, Quaker ministry, academic pursuits and accomplishments, and activism. A recording of his talk is available above, along with the Powerpoint that accompanied his talk. You are encouraged to listen to the quartet of Paul Robeson songs before viewing the presentation.
