ST. DAVIDS, PA— All are welcome to join Palmer Theological Seminary of Eastern University for the 42nd Annual Mitchell Lectureship, which will take place in-person and virtually on Friday, February 3, 2023 at 10 a.m. The in-person lectureship will take place at Pinn Memorial Baptist Church (2251 N 54th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19131). The event will also be live streamed via Facebook. The annual Mitchell Lectureship highlights distinguished African American scholars and is the keystone event of the Seminary's celebration of African American Heritage Month.

The event is named in honor of Reverend Dr. Frank B. Mitchell, Jr., pastor of Pinn Memorial Baptist Church for over 40 years. Over the years of his ministry, he was responsible for guiding many new ministers into service. He directed many of them to Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary (now Palmer Theological Seminary) for their training. Each year, the Mitchell Lecturer is invited to address issues relevant to the Church through the perspectives of African American theology and culture.

The guest lecturer will be Rev. Dr. Starsky Wilson, President & CEO, Children's Defense Fund & CDF Action Council.
