Heading back to Boston this weekend to participate in a conference that is going to happen on the Boston University campus.
The ‘ event will be taking place on April 8 in the George Sherman Union Ballroom on the BU campus jointly sponsored by the Howard Thurman Center for Common Ground and the Boston Theological Center.
Join us on April 8 for a public conference titled entitled, “Our History, Our Future: a Multigenerational Conference on Human Rights.”

They are gifted in ministry, music and the arts, shaping public policy, writing, peace negotiation and nonviolent direct action.
