The authors of <i>Passionate for Justice: Ida B. Wells As Prophet for Our Time</i> discuss the life and lessons of Ida B. Wells.

In Passionate for Justice: Ida B. Wells As Prophet for Our Time, authors Catherine Meeks, PhD, and Nibs Stroupe create a guide for the current state of affairs in American culture that is enlivened by the historical perspective of Wells' search for justice. Meeks is the retired Clara Carter Acree Distinguished Professor of Socio-Cultural Studies at Wesleyan College and the Director of the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing. Gibson (“Nibs”) Stroupe served as pastor of Oakhurst Presbyterian Church in Decatur, Georgia, for 34 years. Oakhurst is nationally known for its multi-racial and multicultural ministry. Both authors have dedicated themselves to working, writing, and developing ministries oriented toward justice, equity, and mercy. This book can be used in all settings, but most especially in churches (pastors and other church leaders, study groups), seminaries, and universities. This event will be held at First Baptist Church of Decatur.
