Robyn Henderson-Espinoza, PhD has been described in a myriad of ways: a scholar-activist, scholar-leader, thought-leader, teacher, public theologian, ethicist, poet of moral reason, and word artist. Dr. Robyn is also a visionary thinker who has spent two decades working in the borderlands of church, academy, & movements.  They work to not only disrupt, but also dismantle supremacy culture by focusing on new concepts of being & becoming, decolonizing knowledge production, & bridging with radical difference. They thrive in a deep hope of collaborating in these borderland spaces where their work contributes to the ongoing work of collective liberation.  Dr. Robyn is the founder of the Activist Theology Project, a Nashville-based collaborative project that seeks to work with the dominant culture and produces curriculum at the intersection of scholarship and activism.
