Jackson’s unparalleled work over the following five decades.The symposium included reflections from Civil Rights Trailblazers: Rev. Dr. Otis Moss Jr, Rev. Martin Deppe, Rev. David Wallace and CTS Professor Rev. Dr. Joanne Terrell.

Renowned scholar Rev. Dr. Obery Hendricks led the conversations and raised the question: “What is an effective theological response to evil?”
