Todne Thomas

Todne Thomas, PhD, is a sociocultural anthropologist and assistant professor of African American religions at Harvard Divinity School. In collaboration with Afro-Caribbean and African American congregants, Thomas conducts ethnographic research on the racial, spatial, and familial dynamics of Black Christian communities in the United States. Her latest book, Kincraft: The Making of Black Evangelical Sociality (2021), explores the internal dynamics of community life among Black evangelicals and presents their determined spiritual relatedness as a form of insurgency. Her current research examines Black church arson and displacement of Black sacred space.
