The Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. to Address National Press Club

The Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., senior pastor of the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, will discuss the role of faith in the public square in a presentation entitled, The African American Religious Experience; Theology & Practice, at a National Press Club breakfast on April 28th. Dr. Wright will also talk about his pastorate, his development as a theologian and teacher, and the how the issues of social justice and global inequities have shaped his faith and his fight for those who are most marginalized in society.

He will address the legacy and tradition of education in his family. And Dr. Wright will put into perspective theologically, historically and politically, his ministry and public service that has been so widely discussed in the media. Dr. Wright will retire from Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago in June, where he served the 8,000-member congregation for 36 years. While at Trinity he developed nearly 100 active ministries/outreach programs and seven separate corporations that continue to serve the greater Chicago community.

He is a sought after lecturer and teacher and speaks at some of the nation’s most prestigious universities and seminaries. The National Press Club breakfast will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. and Rev. Wright’s remarks will begin just after 9:00 a.m., followed by a question-and-answer session. Credentialed press may cover this event with proper ID.
