Rev. Osagyefo Sekou delivers a Candler Dean’s lecture titled “The Liberation Theology of Ferguson” on April 8, 2015. Rev. Sekou is a Freeman Fellow at the Fellowship of Reconciliation, an international and interfaith organization founded at the start of World War I. In August 2014, he traveled to Ferguson, where he trained hundreds of protestors in nonviolent civil disobedience. While there, Sekou was arrested twice: once for praying in front of riot police, and later while co-leading a group of religious leaders on Moral Monday.
