2021 W. Don McClure Lectures with Kimberly Hill

W. Don McClure Online Lectures on Mission and Evangelism


Oct 6 and 13, 2021, 7:30-9:00 p.m. ET via Zoom


This year’s McClure lectures will feature Dr. Kimberly D. Hill, historian of African-American missions and Black internationalism, who teaches U.S. and African-American history at the University of Texas at Dallas. Hill’s important research on the contribution of African-American missionaries to Protestant missions has been published in numerous ways, including her recent book, A Higher Mission: The Careers of Althea Brown Edmiston in Central Africa. Hill’s research and teaching career has brought to light an often-neglected stream of mission history: African-American missionaries sent by Protestant denominations to Africa.

The McClure events will be held on two Wednesdays, Oct. 6 and 13, 2021, from 7:30-9:00 p.m. ET. The first session will feature a presentation by Dr. Hill on "Christian Justice, Exploitation, and Racial Violence from ‘Red Rubber’ to ‘Bloody Sunday.’" The second session will be a panel discussion with Dr. Hill and Dr. Asa Lee, president of PTS, on the topic of "Reckoning with Invisibility: African-American Missionaries and Their Hidden Legacies". Mark your calendar for these two important dates of lecture and conversation and register below.
