Distance Learning will be the modality of course delivery at American Baptist College (ABC) for the Fall 2020 semester. Classes will begin Monday, August 24, and the semester ends Friday, December 18, 2020. Distance learning means that courses will not be held in a face-to-face format on campus. Courses are, however, scheduled for specific dates and times so that faculty may design the learning environment to include synchronous lectures and discussions, with faculty and students available and interacting together at the scheduled time.

The thought for the subject, A Portable Pulpit was inspired from a conversation that I had with Pastor Napoleon Harris, who is a 1985 graduate of the American Baptist College. The context and content of our dialogue was sparked by the person, work, life, and death of Congressman John R. Lewis and Rev. Dr. C.T. Vivian
We cannot account for divine providence to have nationally and internationally recognized icons of the civil rights movement, recipients of the nation‚Äôs highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, that their long extraordinary public life of service began here in Nashville at American Baptist College. Here the discovery of a moral compass for justice courageously guided them to confront the segregation culture of Nashville‚Äôs lunch counters.
Coming to Nashville at a young age as a student at American Baptist College, John Lewis was captured by the dream of a world of fairness and equality, ideals of the beloved community. Congressman Lewis has secured a prominent place in the history of America‚Äôs ‚Äúprofiles in courage.‚ÄĚ He never quit, never allowed fear of death to stop him, hate to keep him from loving enemies to reach justice, fighting with every ounce of his humanity against the status quo of American racial injustice.
