The Center for the Study of Religion at Princeton University has received a $120,000 grant from the Ford Foundation to explore the vital connections between religion, race and gender.

The grant will be used to host meetings on the topic, bring guest lecturers to campus and support a postdoctoral fellow, Marla Frederick from Duke University, who will spend her year at Princeton writing a book about contemporary African-American spirituality and social activism in the South.
