Perkins Foundation for Reconciliation and Development of Jackson Mississippi is a sharecropper's son who grew up in Mississippi amidst dire poverty. Perkins fled to California when he was 17 after his older brother's murder at the hands of a town marshal. He vowed never to return. However, in 1960, after his conversion to Christ, he returned to his boyhood home to share the gospel of Christ with his people. His outspoken support and leadership role in civil rights demonstrations resulted in repeated harassment, imprisonment and beatings. Despite dropping out of school in the third grade, Perkins received recognition for his work with seven honorary doctorates from Wheaton College, Gordon College, Huntington College, Geneva College, Spring Arbor College, North Park College and Belhaven College. He is an international speaker and teacher on issues of racial reconciliation, leadership and community development.
