2022-2023 Crossroad Fellows Grant Recipients

February 14, 2022

The Crossroads Project is pleased to announce the recipients of the first Crossroads Fellows grants for  projects that will help advance understanding of the diversity of Black religious communities and cultures, past and present.

The 2022-2023 cohort of Crossroads Fellows represent scholarly, artistic, activist, and religious communities, and their projects will take a variety of forms, including documentary and experimental film, digital mapping, oral history interviews, curated digital exhibits, research reports, sound installation, dance and spoken word performance.

We are grateful to the members of the Crossroads Project Advisory Board for their their contributions to the development of the Request for Proposals and their thoughtful consideration of the proposals during the selection process.

This grant program is made possible by the generous support of the Henry Luce Foundation.
