LPTS community invites seminary constituents and friends to participate across the e-waves in a month-long celebration of African American History Month.
February 1, 2008
“If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. This struggle may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.” – Frederick Douglass
Join the Louisville Seminary community in celebrating African American History month. On weekdays during the month of February, the Cultural Diversity Committee will be sending out inspiring and thought-provoking quotations of African Americans. Many of these quotations have been submitted by members of the African American New Testament Hermeneutics course, taught by New Testament Professor Susan Garrett during the January term.
If you would like to receive daily quotes on weekdays, send your email address to Dr. Susan Garrett, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Cultural Diversity Committee acts as a forum for concerns by the people of the Seminary community relating to issues of race, ethnicity, and diversity. As a component of the shared governance system on the campus, the committee provides opportunity and occasions for the community to discuss the importance of minority concerns and diversity in the community, in the wider church, in society, and in the world.
