That question intrigued retired theologian Maryjean Bailey, who has traveled the world seeking answers to that question.

She shares her discoveries in a two-part lecture series presented by South Coast Senior College on Thursday, April 14 and Thursday, April 21, 10 a.m.- noon at the college, in the Mid-Cafe.

The lectures will discuss her travels to find images of the Black Madonna, creations depicting the Virgin Mary and the infant Jesus with dark skin.

When did the Black Madonna first appear and why is there new interest in them now?

These are the questions Bailey will touch on in her fascinating lecture series.
