Remembrance and Memorial is 

a two-day symposium and hybrid event—virtual and in person—bringing together musicians, clergy, scholars, and practitioners to discuss the public health crisis of HIV/AIDS in Black communities in the United States. Focusing on Black Gospel Music, panelists and keynote speakers will reckon with how Black churches lost to AIDS-complications musicians, singers, choir directors between 1980 and 2005. This focus on musicians, singers and choir directors will set the stage for a much more robust conversation about public health crises, the internalization of harmful doctrines and theologies, and  ways to heal from the past, to give memorial for the many lost and to pursue a path forward with integrity, joy and justice.
