The St. Louis County Library Foundation, HEC Media, The St. Louis County Library’s 2023 Black History Celebration, and Left Bank Books present Spiritual and Civil Rights Leader Otis Moss, III, author of “Dancing in the Darkness: Spiritual Lessons for Surviving in Turbulent Times.”  

 

Reverend Otis Moss, III, Senior Pastor at Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ and one of the country’s most renowned spiritual and civil rights leaders, offers a guide to uplift our spirits as we work toward justice. Inspired by a sermon he wrote on his own cycle of worry and anger, “Dancing in the Darkness” is a life-affirming guide to the practical, political, and spiritual challenges of our day. Drawing on the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Howard Thurman, sacred scripture, southern wisdom, global spiritual traditions, and his own personal experiences, Dr. Moss shares wisdom on combining justice and love and the spiritual reserves we all possess but too often overlook.

Doors open at 6:00pm CST.
Books available from Left Bank Books. Curbside pick-up, in-store pick-up, and shipping available.
