2022 Mitchell Lectureship Recap

Dr. Teresa Fry Brown shared an emphatically imaginative word for all to hear in honor of African American Heritage Month.

The 2022 Mitchell Lecture was hosted by Palmer Theological Seminary on February 4, 2022. 

This annual lecture is our keystone lecture during the celebration of African American Heritage Month. Our keynote speaker, Dr. Teresa Fry Brown, shared words of wisdom that sparked listeners via Zoom and Facebook Live to dig deep into the power of our imagination. We were able to hear the music of Frank Mitchell, III and the voices of the family of multi-grammy award winning Professor Steven Ford, Eastern's Director of Music.

Dr. Kimberlee A. Johnson, Interim Dean of Palmer Seminary, shared her sentiments of rejoicing for the successful lecture. 

"This could not have been done without the prayer, vision, and hard work of a great team of planners and participants. The prophetic voice of Dr. Teresa Fry Brown was a blessing! If you missed the lecture, please check it out on Palmer's Facebook page. Thanks to the planning team: Drs. Marsha Brown Woodard, Phaedra Blocker, Eva Ragwan, and myself. Dr. David Bronkema helped in the planning last year as well so we are grateful for him. Phaedra along with Sanovia, and Erin Zak did an excellent job in managing the technology, and the participants were outstanding. The student assembly reps Wanda Cooper Harris and Paulette Brown, Dr. Tokunbo Adelekan, and Frank Mitchell, III blessed our souls too.” 

“Maybe, just maybe, our imaginations need not to be normal but extraordinary and excellent.”

- Dr. Teresa Fry Brown
