OUR FACILITATOR: Rev. Kamal Hassan is the Pastor/Teaching Elder at the Sojourner Truth Presbyterian Church in Richmond California, a position he has held since 2008. He was the 2014 Moderator of the Presbytery of San Francisco. Prior to coming to Sojourner Truth Presbyterian Church, Rev. Hassan spent 30 years in his first career as an educator, teaching at all levels from elementary school to university. His innovative and transformative work in the classroom was the centerpiece of an article entitled, “Raising the Critical Consciousness of African American Students…A Portrait of an Exemplary African American Male Teacher,” that was published in Howard University’s Journal of Negro Education. We are excited to present this educational event for church leaders.
