Concordia Seminary Walkout 50th Anniversary
Join Concordia Historical Institute on February 19, 2024 from 4:00–5:30pm for “A Community in Crisis: Personal Reflections on the Concordia Seminary Walkout.” This moderated discussion features eyewitnesses and family members of individuals involved in the events surrounding the 1974 Concordia Seminary Saint Louis Walkout of student and faculty and the subsequent formation of Christ Seminary in Exile or Seminex. We’ll be exploring the effect of this fateful day on the community and families on campus in this special event. Guests will share their personal reflections on the ways the Walkout and surrounding controversy affected their lives as children, as well as how their families responded. A brief Q&A session will follow.
Admission to this talk is free, though we always appreciate donations! Coffee and light refreshments will be provided. An RSVP is required for this event. No livestream is available for this event.
UPDATE: The location for this event has been changed in order to accommodate the large response! The 2024 Walkout event is now in Koburg Hall on Concordia Seminary, just across the street from CHI.
