Popular Bay Area Preacher Speaks at CSUS

Rev. Alfred Smith, leader of the Bay Area's largest African American church and one of Oakland's "Outstanding Citizens of the Year," will speak at California State University, Sacramento at noon on Friday, Feb. 16 at the University Union Ballroom.

Smith's lecture, "What Does the Radical Transformation of Values Mean According to the Ideals of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.?" is part of the University's Year of Unity, a campus-wide commitment to promote peace, tolerance, learning and understanding.

Smith is the recipient of more than 125 awards including Ebony magazine's list of America's 15 greatest African American preachers. He is a professor at the Christian Ministry at the American Baptist of the West and the Graduate Theological Union of Berkeley.

A panel of CSUS students will respond to Smith's remarks in a roundtable discussion following his speech at 2:30 p.m. and a reception will be held from 3:30 - 5:30 p.m. in the University Union Ballroom. The events are free and open to the public.
