Dear Community,

It is with great sadness that I share with you the news of our beloved and esteemed professor, Dr. Gay L. Byron’s passing. She fought valiantly and passed peacefully this morning. Please keep her sons, Lloyd and PJ, their extended family, her classmates, colleagues, and University community in prayer.

Up until last week, she was working on a monograph titled Hidden in Plain Sight: Ethiopic Manuscripts and Early Christianity, a major project funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

The best way to celebrate and honor her is to be devoted to her love and passion which was her scholarship.

More details to follow.

Blessings,
Dean Gilbert

I am very proud to share that CNN Heroes will feature the story of ScholarCHIPS, a non-profit founded and directed by our 2018 alumna Ms. Yasmine Arrington-Brooks.

ScholarCHIPS raises scholarship funding and provides college-bound children of incarcerated parents a connection to a network of professional mentors.

We celebrate Yasmine’s accomplishments and are excited to welcome her home this Wednesday, Nov. 8th, 5:30-6:30 PM, as our featured chapel speaker. The service will be livestreamed from Howard University School of Divinity’s page. Although ScholarCHIPS has made the Top 10, I want us to rally and help Yasmine to become CNN’s 2023 Hero of the Year! Spread the word and take a moment to vote. Each person can vote up to ten times a day, every day from now through December 5th.

Instructions

Go to www.CNNHeroes.com and click the tagline "Vote for Your Choice for Hero of the Year," which is a link directly under the photo ad of all ten finalists. When you click the voting link, go to the box that has Yasmine’s photo, and click the VOTE button. When you click vote, a sliding scale will pop up. Please slide the scale to the right, all the way to the number 10, and submit! Please also share and repost on Twitter, Facebook, and/or LinkedIN.

Theological wrestling and interrogating our theological assumptions help us to refine our theological and moral vision. Howard Associate Professor of Psychology and Pastoral Care, Dr. Ronald Hopson, asks the question, “What does it mean to be Christian?” What he models after his didactic treatment of a gospel reading customarily designated for and commonly referred to as Palm Sunday is what I hope Christian preachers would see as a promising practice; that is, to invite discussion following the message.
