As a theological critic of Imperial America William Stringfellow exposed the power of “babel” in the systematic assault on truth. In 1956 as a Harvard Law School graduate he took up street law in East Harlem. From there he participated in the freedom struggle and began to write about the “principalities,” naming white racism as a demonic power.
A close friend of Fa. Daniel Berrigan, he was a biblical interpreter of the anti-war and anti-nuclear resistance movements. He authored fifteen books, all currently in print. Beginning with My People is the Enemy, Bill told his autobiography as an active engagement with the powers.
We will celebrate his life and thought through Bible-study, art, personal remembrance, historical exhibition and even film (the newly released Seeking Shelter, on the 1970 FBI arrest of Berrigan then underground at Stringfellow’s home on Block Island).
Resource leaders include:
Bill Wylie-Kellermann, non-violent activist, theological interpreter of the powers, and author of six books - including two on William Stringfellow.
Sue Hagadorn, Director of Seeking Shelter, and the forthcoming major documentary on Daniel and Phillip Berrigan
