Bill Fletcher, host of The Global African and former president of TransAfrica Forum, speaks with Rev. Heber Brown, III, Pastor of Pleasant Hope Baptist Church and Rev. Michael Livingston, Past President of the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA
"We are delighted that Heber is one of our game-changing new leaders,"said The Rev. Anne Howard, Executive Director of The Beatitudes Society. "We are working toward the day when we will see a thriving nationwide web of courageous, authentic, innovative faith leaders and their communities who are engaged in the public square on behalf of inclusion, compassion, and the common good, and Heber will be a vital part of that network."
One of my biggest disappointments in the political sense, however, is that once again the Black Community is being led to support the legislative priorities established by other people without making demands of our own which will benefit a greater majority of our own people.
It has been my joy for the past 4 years to pastor Pleasant Hope Baptist Church in Baltimore, MD. It was a church that was already involved in the community before I arrived and since my coming, we've purposed to just be more of who we've always been
