Thank you Betsy, Liz, Ricardo and Salina. Not only is “Moonlight” a virtual Shakespearean Ode to Black Men, but as a group, you four have raised the level of discourse about this very complex topic to a new level: This discourse is a brilliant example of how to hold a rational and compassionate conversation about the Black experience without resorting to dated and offensive tropes. You’ve honored the film but more importantly, you’ve honored the subject matter.

Our Church can learn from your example.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
