Duke Divinity School will hold a Service of the Word with the Rev. Ernest Brooks, D'11, assistant dean of the Martin Luther King, Jr. International Chapel at Morehouse College in Atlanta, Ga., preaching.
This service is part of the Sankofa Preaching Series, sponsored by the Office of Black Church Studies at the Divinity School. The series derives its name from the word sankofa in the Akan language of Ghana that translates as "reach back and get it." Each Tuesday in the month of February, the series will "reach back" to hear from some of the Divinity School's distinguished African American alumni.
The Gospel Choir will offer music. All are welcome.
