Bishop / President Northwest Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction of the Church of God in Christ / Northwest University

Introduced by: John Martinka

Bishop Dr. Reggie Witherspoon and Dr. Joseph Castleberry will be speaking on the topic “Where do We Go from Here in America’s Struggle for Racial Justice?”  Rev. Witherspoon will reflect on recent developments in the Black Lives movement from his perspective as an African-American citizen and leader and will project what he hopes to see in terms of future development.  Dr. Castleberry will offer perspective as well, with a view toward suggesting concrete actions  Rotarians can take to express the 4-Way Test in the struggle for greater justice and equality.  Witherspoon and Castleberry were recently featured in a front-page Seattle Times article highlighting their work to bring together Black and White religious leaders in our area.
