Wesley Theological Seminary will celebrate African American History Month with a series of special chapel services, lectures and events throughout the month of February.

On February 19, Wesley will examine the impact and legacy of the life of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King with a full day of special events. Reverend Leah D. Daughtry, 2012 graduate of Wesley and Pastor of The House of the Lord Church in Washington, D.C., will preach at the 11:00 a.m. service in Oxnam Chapel, participate in an open discussion with students and guests at noon, and deliver a lecture on the legacy of Dr. King and the state of race and politics in the nation today at 5:00 p.m. in the chapel. Daughtry is a nationally recognized teacher, preacher, speaker, organizer, leader, and Democratic strategist. The Association of Black Seminarians (ABS) is hosting Rev. Daughtry’s 5:00 p.m. lecture.

In addition to the MLK centered events on February 19, Wesley will offer several other opportunities for the community and the public to celebrate and acknowledge African American History Month. On February 12, Urban Fellow Eleanor Colvin will present “A Celebration in Drama” at 5:15 p.m. in the chapel, and on February 26, Rev. Dr. Timothy West will preach at 5:15 p.m. in the chapel.

At the request of ABS, Drew Colby, a Wesley graduate, will preach on the topic, “The story must be told lest we forget,” during the 11:00 a.m. chapel service on February 12.

Wesley invites all students and friends of the seminary to join us for these important and enlightening events.
