Black Evangelical ITC Professor – A Prophet Without Honor
National Black Evangelical Association Supports
Rev. Dr. Jamal-Dominique Hopkins
The National Black Evangelical Association (NBEA), with its officers and associates, stand with our brother, Dr. Jamal-Dominique Hopkins, in his seeking vindication for what we believe is the unjust
termination of his professorship at the Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta, GA, on July 2nd of 2012.
The presiding power at this historical Black institution fired a Black evangelical prophet. Indeed, apparently without manifest justification or due recourse, the (ir)responsible decision-maker treated the Rev. Dr. Hopkins with dishonor, unprofessionalism, academic biases, and human indignity. The institution fails to redress the relevant issues and respect a fellow scholar who is the only known African-American authority in the area of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and who happens to be of an intentional “Black
evangelical” persuasion. - Weigh in on the conversation.
