2019 MLK Celebration

Hosted by
The William E. Pannell Center for Black Church Studies
Fuller Seminary
Open to the public


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.
