AnneMarie Mingo was quoted today in this MSNBC news story: Ahmaud Arbery trial today: 100-plus Black clergy assemble to show support.

“According to AnneMarie Mingo, an assistant professor of African American studies and women’s, gender and sexuality studies at Penn State University, ‘Historically, liberation-oriented Black pastors and religious leaders leveraged their relative economic independence to speak boldly through their sermons, prayers, songs and Bible studies to educate and motivate parishioners to stand and fight for their civil and human rights by forcing America to live up to its own creeds.’”

This is excellent recognition of her expertise! Congratulations, AnneMarie!
