Event Details

Please join the William E. Pannell Center for African American Church Studies in celebrating the life and leadership of Martin Luther King Jr. We are honored to host Dr. Dwight Hopkins, the Alexander Campbell Professor of Theology at the University of Chicago Divinity School, as this year’s featured speaker. We are also delighted to welcome Bishop Kenneth Ulmer as the guest speaker for our Celebration Worship Service. This year we have chosen The Black Church and the Urban Poor in America as our theme.On April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee, while fighting for a 10-cent wage increase for garbage workers—efforts by King that were part of a broader and more sustained initiative known as the Poor People’s Campaign.With over 43 million people living in poverty in the United States today, King’s ideas still hold much power.

ABOUT THE PANNELL CENTER

The William E. Pannell Center for African American Church Studies seeks to expand the formation of today's Christian leaders, deepening their understanding of and engagement with the African American church and its contributions to society. Through academic, practical, and spiritual formation opportunities, the center nurtures relationships between the broader church, the Fuller community, and the African American church, community, and culture.

The Pannell Center was birthed in 1974—initially called the Theological Studies Program for Black Ministers—largely through the efforts of former trustee and longtime faculty member William E. Pannell, in whose honor the center was named in 2015. Its founding stemmed from a conviction that the Black church has much to contribute to the seminary experience, a conviction that continues to guide its work today.
