Location: Women's Resource Center, 103 Mercy Hall

Join the Women's Resource Center for Brown Bag Talk on an ethnographic glance at U.S. Santeria, touching on the topics of sexual minorities, Latin American communities and spirituality/religiosity.

This talk will center on constructions of Latin American communities through a five-year ethnographic research project focused on Santeri­a, an Afro-Cuban religious-cultural practice, and its adaptation to the U.S. (in particular, the East Coast). The research looks at processes of racialization and how Santeri­a is perceived, from the outside; it also shows how racial markers influence Santeria's practice among the various populations who belong to it. The talk also centers its analysis on the study of sexual minorities, and their participation, in Santeria.

Presidential Guest Series: "A Good Man: Faith, Hope, and Love in Action," Mark K. Shriver

Time: 7 pm to 9 pm

Contact: Eric Walsh · etwalsh@loyno.edu · 504-865-2304

Location: Roussel Performance Hall, 2nd Floor, Comm./Music Complex

Loyola University New Orleans will host Mark K. Shriver, son of Peace Corps founder Sargent Shriver and Special Olympics founder Eunice Kennedy Shriver and nephew to President John F. Kennedy, for a special talk Tuesday, Sept. 30 at 7 p.m. Shriver will share with the audience the guiding principles of his legendary father’s life and how he strives to apply the same principles—faith, hope and love—in his own career fighting for social justice and advancing the right of every child to a safe and vibrant childhood.

The event, which also features a book signing by Shriver, is part of Loyola’s Presidential Guest Series—a series of inspiring talks that are free and open to the public. The talk will take place in Roussel Hall, located on the second floor of the Communications/Music Complex on Loyola’s main campus. Parking on campus is free for the event.

Shriver is president of the Save the Children Action Network, a new organization that seeks to elevate children on the local, state and national agenda. Shriver leads Save the Children Action Network’s campaigns to end preventable maternal, newborn and child deaths worldwide and to ensure that every child in the U.S. has access to high-quality early childhood education.

That lifelong passion for fighting for social justice is something he shares with his late father, Sargent Shriver. When his father—known for the Peace Corps and also as the architect of President Johnson’s War on Poverty—died in 2011 with Alzheimer’s, thousands of tributes and memories flooded in from friends and strangers worldwide. These tributes, which celebrated the day-to-day kindness and humanity of his father, moved Shriver not only to renew his passion for work that follows in his father’s footsteps, but also led him to write a book: a New York Times and Washington Post best-selling memoir, “A Good Man: Rediscovering My Father, Sargent Shriver.” The book received a 2013 Christopher Award.

In the book, Shriver rediscovers personal stories from friends and family that focus on the three guiding principles of his father’s life—faith, hope and love. In the process, Mark discovers much about himself, as a father, as a husband, and as a social justice advocate. His talk at Loyola will feature the inspirational and deeply personal story about a son discovering the true meaning of his father’s legacy—a legacy that offers lessons for all.
