2023-2024 Crossroads Fellows Grant Recipients
The Crossroads Project is pleased to announce the recipients of the second Crossroads Fellows grants for projects that will help advance understanding of the diversity of Black religious communities and cultures, past and present.
The 2023-2024 Crossroads Fellows represent scholarly, artistic, activist, and religious communities, and their projects will take a variety of forms, including documentary film, musical composition, musical performance, comic books, digital mapping, digital preservation, and community history. The Fellows' projects address Black religious experiences in a broad geographic range, including locations in North America, the Caribbean, and Africa.
We are fortunate to have a wonderful, engaged, and thoughtful Crossroads Project Advisory Board, and we are grateful for their work in the selection process.
This grant program is made possible by the generous support of the Henry Luce Foundation.
