About the Ruben L. Speaks Lecture Series
The Ruben L. Speaks Lecture Series is named in honor of the late Bishop Ruben Lee Speaks, who served in the A.M.E. Zion Church as bishop, pastor, preacher, teacher, and writer. Bishop Speaks authored A Handbook for Ministers and Lay Leaders, The Minister and His Task, The Church and Black Liberation, God in an Age of Scarcity, and Prelude to Pentecost. Bishop Speaks received the Chancellor’s Award from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and the Distinguished Citizen Award from the Brooklyn Advisory Committee of the New York Urban League. Ebony Magazine once named him one of the “100 Most Influential Black Leaders in America.” As Bishop, he served in Africa, the Caribbean, and the United States. He was acknowledged on numerous occasions for his leadership and creative engagement in ministry. When he presided over the Liberia Conference, the late President of Liberia, William Tolbert, dubbed him, “Knight of African Redemption.”
