Hidden Histories: Faith and Black Lesbian Leadership
Dr. Moultrie collects oral histories of Black lesbian religious leaders in the United States and shows how their authenticity, social justice awareness, spirituality, and collaborative leadership make them models of womanist ethical leadership.
Dr. Moultrie helps conduct interviews with various LGBTQ+ religious leaders across the United States for the LGBTQ Religious Archives Network whose mission is to support the preservation of personal papers and organizational records of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender religious movements, and encourage scholarly research.
The dominant cultural narrative is that religion is opposed to abortion, but most religious people in the US support the legality of abortion.
Although numerous studies have documented the reasons women have abortions, virtually no research has examined how a woman’s religious identity shapes her decision to terminate a pregnancy. Dr. Moultrie is participating in the project to create a better understanding of woman’s religious identity in shaping their decisions.
The Garden Initiative for Black Women’s Religious Activism is a three-year project to create a historical and contemporary repository of black women’s religious leadership in America.
The Garden is led by Dr. Monique Moultrie and Dr. Rosetta Ross and aims to document and archive black women religious leadership, create a hub for mentoring leaders, and expand scholarship.
Through engaging community members and scholars, The Garden will promote a broad examination of diverse religious traditions and varieties of religious leadership in America.
