The Wheaton College Office of Intercultural Engagement invites you to view the Keynote Speech by Dr. Bernice A. King entitled The Fierce Urgency to Follow Christ. Dr. King’s keynote address followed the awarding of the second annual Rodney K. Sisco Diversity Student’s Choice Award to faculty member, Dr. Nathan Cartagena and, staff member, Mr. Daniel Watts. They were honored for their work to “cultivate a grace-filled, Christ-centered academic community where all members are recognized, loved, and respected,” as articulated in Wheaton College’s Christ-Centered Diversity Commitment.
“It is significant and symbolic that Dr. Bernice A. King is the symposium’s inaugural speaker because as she is building on the work of her father, the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., as we are building on the work of Mr. Rodney K. Sisco,” said Wheaton College Chief Intercultural Engagement Officer Dr. Sheila Caldwell. “Both were godly men who dedicated their lives to advancing the Christly traits of service, mercy, justice, and unity.”
Please enjoy this speech as part of Wheaton's 2020 celebration of Black History Month.
