Bio:

Todne Thomas (Chipumoro) is an assistant professor of African American Religions at Harvard Divinity School, and a Suzanne Young Murray Professor at Harvard’s Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study. Thomas’s current book project, based on extensive ethnographic work in Atlanta, Georgia, attempts to show how both traditionally African American and more recent Afro-Caribbean immigrant churches appeal to (or obscure) the interwoven nature of race and kinship to navigate racial discrimination. She received her B.A. from Cornell University and her M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Virginia.
