Continuing the Conversation: One Man's Story of Coming of Age in the Segregated South

Continuing the Conversation presents for Unity Week, "Freedom and Faith: One Man's story of Coming of Age in the Segregated South"

Rev. Dr. Luther Felder remembers being 10 years old when the phone rang. His brother, a college student at the time, was calling to let the family know that he was joining Dr. King's movement as a Freedom Rider. His father, a stoic man, wept out of fear for his son's life.

Felder will tell his story of navigating segregation throughout the south in the 50s and 60s, and those moments that galvanized not only his commitment to social justice, but the role faith played in his life and in the movement. He will be interviewed by Adam Kirtley, Whitman's Chaplain, and there will be an opportunity for questions.

Rev. Dr. Felder serves as Campus Pastor and Professor of Religion at Paine College, an HBCU in Augusta, Georgia.
