Televising Testimony: BGC Archives Presents Lecture on Kathryn Kuhlman
Each year the Billy Graham Center Archival Research Lecture features a scholar describing his or her recent discoveries in the BGC Archives. This year, at 7 p.m. Thursday, September 29, Amy Artman will deliver a lecture titled "Televising Testimony: Kathryn Kuhlman and Your Faith and Mine."
Dr. Artman is an historian of American religion who earned her doctorate at the University of Chicago. She spent hundreds of hours going through films and videos of Kuhlman's early television programs in the Billy Graham Center Archives. Artman’s lecture will focus on the significant contribution 20th century evangelist Kathryn Kuhlman had on American religion and television evangelism.
In addition to the lecture and Q&A session, there will be an exhibit of documents, photos, and videos from the Archives about Kuhlman and her ministry. A reception sponsored by the Institute for the Study of American Evangelicals will follow.
Free and open to the public, this event will be held in the Wilson Suite on the fourth floor of the Billy Graham Center, located at 500 College Avenue in Wheaton. For more information about the evening, call 630.752.5910.
