The Role of the Black Church in the Community, Social Responsibility, and Food Justice
January 7, 2014
Tuesday's Conversations with Al McFarlane featured a discussion about the role of the Black church in the community, social responsibility, and food justice. Participants were Reverend Nazim B. Fakir, Pastor Owen E. Williams, and Dr. Willie Dean.
Reverend Fakir is pastor of St. Peter’s AME Church in south Minneapolis and the son of Abdul “Duke” Fakir, the sole remaining member of the legendary Motown group The Four Tops. Pastor Fakir grew up in Detroit and has a unique perspective of the role of the Black church in the community, social responsibility and food justice.
KFAI's Executive Director Dr. Willie Dean has more than three decades of nonprofit management and fundraising experience through the YMCA.
