"Being a Change Agent: Justice-Seeking in the Era of Black Lives Matter" with Dr. Derek Hicks

"Being a Change Agent: Justice-Seeking in the Era of Black Lives Matter" with Dr. Derek Hicks, Wake Forest University School of Divinity Associate Professor of Religion and Culture

Dr. Hicks will discuss how modern day social movements like Black Lives Matter and civil rights organizations like the Children's Defense Fund help move us closer to justice for Black people. We will consider ways to make a meaningful impact in our society toward racial justice. Now, more than ever, we need committed Christian leaders who are willing agents of justice, reconciliation, and compassion. Learn more about how you can make a difference as a faith leader.
