Forward Together: A Moral Message for the Nation is the title of Rev. Dr. William Barber’s 2014 book in which he relates the story of a justice movement born in North Carolina and spreading throughout the nation. Rev. Barber’s tenacious work of public activism for the cause of racial justice places him squarely in the tradition of Rev. King in the 1950’s and 1960’s and speaks powerfully of what remains to be accomplished in the arena of Civil Rights in America. As present-day “heir apparent” to Rev. King in the pulpit tradition, Rev. Barber brings his prophetic voice to Dallas to give eloquent testimony to the challenges we still face today. The Symposium will include gospel music and a panel featuring Dallas leaders along with Rev. Barber.
