Yolanda Pierce is professor and dean of the Howard University School of Divinity in Washington, DC. In 2016 she served as Founding Director of the Center for African American Religious Life at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. She formerly worked at Princeton Theological Seminary. The Rev. Dr. Pierce is the author of a beautiful and poignant book published last year titled In My Grandmother’s House: Black Women, Faith, and the Stories We Inherit. We talk today about the morality, sense of identity, and theology she inherited from her religious and familial upbringing, and what she hopes she is leaving behind.
