WGS Alumni Holden Cession featured in the NY Times

WGS Alumni Holden Cession was recently featured in an article by Molly Wharton titled “What’s God Got to Do With It?” In it, Holden talks about how they see Black Lives Matter and the movement for racial justice as deeply connected to their spirituality.

“Mx. Cession grew up in a conservative Pentecostal family, a preacher’s kid in the small town of Rural Hall, N.C. Affirming Christianity now requires ‘a 30-page footnote breaking down what I mean,’ but Mx. Cession sees Black Lives Matter in spiritual terms: ‘We are the messiahs of our generation. We are the people that the ancestors were praying for.'”
