  Rev. Dr. Robert Franklin

The Rev. Dr. Robert Franklin was recently appointed the 10th president of Morehouse College in Atlanta, Ga. Formerly Dr. Franklin was a distinguished professor of social ethics for the Candler School of Theology at Emory University. A scholar-preacher and insightful educator, he has also served at the University of Chicago, Harvard Divinity School, Colgate-Rochester Divinity School, and the Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta, as well as at the Ford Foundation.

His books include Liberating Vision: Human Fulfillment and Social Justice in African-American Thought, Another Day’s Journey: Black Churches Confronting the American Crisis, and his recently published Crisis in the Village: Restoring Hope in African American Communities, in which he calls for practical and comprehensive action for change from within the African American community and from all Americans. One of the leading voices in the field of theological education, Dr. Franklin has also recently completed a sabbatical in which he traveled around the world to observe the role of religion in the public arena of various cultures. He is also a frequent commentator on Public Radio’s “All Things Considered.”

Dr. Franklin is a member of one of the fastest growing African American denominations, the Church of God in Christ, which has a rich mix of evangelical and liberal heritage. For his lecture on Sacred Texts in Context, Dr. Franklin will remind us of the ways in which sacred texts have been misused in defense of slavery and how this has affected the history of Black people throughout history and around the world.

Dr. Franklin served as Chautauqua’s Theologian-in-Residence during the 2005 season. . . . short bio
