The Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Jr. will be the featured speaker at the James Howard Baker Award Dinner on October 14, 2016. Dr. Wright served as pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago for some 36 years before retiring at the end of May, 2008.
During his tenure at Trinity, the church membership grew from a mere 87 members in 1972 to more than 8000 while he served as Pastor.
As a highly educated minister, he holds four earned degrees–a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts in English from Howard University, a Master of Arts in the History of Religions from the University of Chicago Divinity School, and a Doctorate of Ministry from the United Theological Seminary.
The Executive Board of Community Brainstorming Conference (CBC) is extremely proud to be able to bring Dr. Wright and his important message to the Milwaukee Community.
The Community Brainstorming Conference has hosted monthly forums since 1986 to bring to the fore issues of interest and concern to the African American Community.
The thirtieth anniversary dinner, with Reverend Wright as keynote speaker, will also be in recognition of the leadership of the late James Howard Baker. Baker was a founding member and a major contributor to the establishment and perpetuation of the Conference. This also marks the twenty-seventh year that the CBC has presented the James Howard Baker Award for community service to a leader in the community.
The Dinner will be held at the Radisson Hotel Milwaukee North Shore, 7065 N Port Washington Rd, Glendale, WI 53217
