The 2019 Noel King Lecture
This year’s Noel King lecture would make my husband Noel so happy!
Meet Mercy Yamoah Odoyuye, a Ghanaian theologian and feminist. Daughter of a Methodist minister and a Church activist, Odoyuye entered the University of Ghana in 1959, where she met Professor Noel Q. King, who urged her to enter the new department of theology.
Odoyuye took a BA from Ghana, then a second BA and MA from Cambridge. She has served on the World Council of Churches, taught at Harvard, Union Theological Seminary, and the University of Ibadan, and written or edited countless books and articles on Christian theology from a feminist and African perspective.
More details to come, but I wanted to let my Santa Cruz friends know—and spread the word!
