Candler School of Theology - Emory University says
At the height of the white South’s massive resistance to the Civil Rights Movement, 28 white Methodist ministers in Mississippi spoke out for school desegregation and racial tolerance. A new book by Dr. Joe Reiff 80T 92G, "Born of Conviction," tells this remarkable story.

Please join us on March 29 for a panel discussion of the Born of Conviction statement and its lessons for today. The panel is free and open to the public. Register at the following link (registration is encouraged for planning purposes, but not required.): https://form.jotform.com/60454418974968

Dr. James Waits, one of the drafters of the 1963 statement and dean of Candler School of Theology from 1978 to 1991, and Dr. Joe Reiff will join Robert Franklin, James T. and Berta R. Laney Professor of Moral Leadership at Candler, and Bobbi Patterson, professor of pedagogy at Emory, in a conversation about the role the Church should play in society, especially in response to injustice, inequality, and human suffering.

This event is sponsored by Emory University’s Office of Spiritual and Religious Life, Emory's Office of Health Promotions, Emory's History Department, the James Weldon Johnson Institute, and the James T. and Berta R. Laney Legacy in Moral Leadership Program at Candler School of Theology.

Cannon Chapel is located on the campus of Emory University, at 515 S. Kilgo Circle, Atlanta, GA 30322.
