Workman Publishing Sends Message: We Are A Movement, Dr. Rev. William Barber II

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent

Although Cannes 2020 is the focus right now, and the films we should see, consider taking a glimpse at this Op-Ed from Peter Workman's enterprise, Workman Publishing.

It will keep you updated on the American fracturing happening right now. Perhaps things break before the enlightenment comes?

Or just chaos before a critical election in the United States put into context...

Curated by Screenmancer Staff - Workman Publishing Op-Ed

As we as a country contemplate questions of racial prejudice, systematic oppression, and equity, Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II’s message of unity and action on behalf of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival has become more essential than ever. WorkmanLogo2020

We Are Called to Be a Movement is a brief sermon in Rev. Dr. Barber’s steadfast, compassionate, and empowering voice that asks readers to act, speak out, and unite with all oppressed peoples against poverty and injustice. 

We Are Called to Be a Movement is the perfect book to ignite commitment to social revolution. Read on to learn more about Rev. Dr. William Barber and the Poor Peoples Campaign.

An Excerpt from Barber's Book, "We Are Called to Be a Movement"

Some have known rejection because of your income, your race, your sexuality. You’ve known rejection because of who you choose to love. You’ve known rejection because of how you were born, the color of your skin, the disability you walk with.

You’ve known rejection because somebody needed somebody to hate to try to feel good about themselves.

DrRevWmBarberIIbk2020

There are people who have known rejection because of faith, because of the lack of faith, because somebody decided in their own ideology that they had a right, a false mandate, to demean your humanity and my humanity given to us only by God.

But I want you to know today, that the stones that the builders rejected are now becoming the cornerstone of this experiment called America.

I want you to know today that when the rejected get together in love and in truth and are willing to build a movement with our bodies on the line, we can in fact redeem the soul of the nation from greed, hate, and discrimination.

-- Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II

 The Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II is the President and Sr. Lecturer of Repairers of the Breach; Co-Chair of the Poor People’s Campaign; Bishop with the College of Affirming Bishops and Faith Leaders; Pastor of Greenleaf Christian Church in Goldsboro, North Carolina, and the author of three books.

Rev. Dr. Barber is also the architect of the Forward Together Moral Movement, and on February 11, 2017, he led the largest moral march in North Carolina history, with over 80,000 people calling on their elected officials to embrace a moral public policy agenda. RevWmBarberIII2020

A highly sought after speaker, Rev. Dr. Barber has given keynote addresses at hundreds of national and state conferences, including the 2016 Democratic National Convention.

Rev. Dr. Barber currently sits on the National NAACP Board of Directors.

A former Mel King Fellow at MIT, he is Visiting Professor of Public Theology and Activism at Union Theological Seminary and is a Senior Fellow at Auburn Seminary.

He is the 2015 recipient of the Puffin Award and the Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Award.
