C-SPAN to Air Rev. Wright at Press Club
The Rev. Dr. Jeremiah Wright Jr., the man who served as Barack Obama’s pastor for more than 20 years, will deliver a breakfast speech at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., today at 9 a.m. Eastern/8 a.m. Central. Of particular note, the speech will be broadcast live on C-SPAN.
The senior pastor of the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago will discuss the role of faith in the public square in a presentation entitled, The African American Religious Experience; Theology & Practice.
As highlighted in a BMW post Wednesday, Dr. Wright will also talk about his pastorate, his development as a theologian and teacher, and at how the issues of social justice and global inequities have shaped his faith and his fight for those who are most marginalized in society. He will address the legacy and tradition of education in his family. And Dr. Wright will put into perspective theologically, historically and politically, his ministry and public service that has been so widely discussed in the media.
