Station three explores the art of insurrection and the ways in which freedom fighters can be viewed as quite literally doing the liberationist work of God—indeed, doing that work while closely tethered to God’s heart. This station—facilitated by critical race theorist and abolitionist theologian, Taurean J. Webb—surveys resistance to enslavement in the Americas. With a particular focus on resistance in Saint Domingue (Haiti) and the United States, this station attempts to chart an historical journey that ultimately gestures towards the salvific, redemptive and liberative possibilities of resistance and insurgency throughout the experiences of the African Diaspora, including the present-day.
