The Role of the Black Church in the Community, Social Responsibility, and Food Justice

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.

Pastor Owen E. Williams is the Pastor of the St. Mark's Missionary Baptist Church In Jamaica, N.Y. and is the author of The Corporate Christian 2-Battle for your Beliefs.

KFAI's Executive Director Dr. Willie Dean has more than three decades of nonprofit management and fundraising experience through the YMCA.
