PITTSBURGH—In celebration of Black History Month, the Community College of Allegheny County South Campus Diversity and Inclusion Committee is sponsoring a lecture on clergy participation during the 1960’s Civil Rights Movement. Presented by Dr. J. LaVon Kincaid Sr., a retired United Methodist pastor, the lecture will take place on February 23 from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. at South Campus Tiger's Lair, Room A309.

Kincaid’s lecture will focus on the significance of nonviolent protest principles that were instilled by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and embraced by others as a means to defeat Jim Crow laws. At the time of the Civil Rights Movement, Kincaid was a student at Clark Atlanta University. He became friends with King and participated in marches in the south. Previously, Kincaid taught at the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, and currently serves as a Penn Hills councilman. He also oversees the new start-up church, New Life Ministries, operating out of the Penn Hills Library.

This lecture is free and open to the public. For further information, please visit www.ccac.edu or call 412.469.6285. CCAC South Campus is located 1750 Clairton Road (Route 885) West Mifflin, Pa., 15122.
