Keynote Speaker: Candice Benbow <> Candice Marie Benbow is a theologian, essayist and creative who situates her work at the intersections of beauty, faith, feminism and culture. In 2015, she created Red Lip Theology, a movement to encourage young Black women to embrace their whole selves as good creation. Through Red Lip Theology, Candice merges theological ideals with beauty industry participation to celebrate Black women’s creativity and spirituality. <> As a public educator, Candice cares about bridging gap between the academy and community through digital projects, including social syllabi. In May 2016, following the release of Beyoncé’s visual album Lemonade, Candice created the #LemonadeSyllabus hashtag and social media campaign. With contributions from over 70 Black women, Candice released the syllabus as a free downloadable resource of over 250 works centered around the lives of Black women. <> You can find Candice on her new podcast, Red Lip Theology with Candice Benbow. In her latest episode Depressed and Still Saved, Candace shares her mental health struggles and how she learned to integrate them into the story of her creation.
