In Memoriam and Alum news

In the April issue of Aware Magazine we celebrate the 45th Anniversary of the Center for the Church and the Black Experience (CBE). CBE’s past is a rich one—embodied by students, staff members, and faculty of Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, by pastors, parishioners, and community leaders in Evanston, metropolitan Chicago, and beyond, and by supporters and partners from many places. Each of these persons contributed to a history filled with teaching and learning, activism and service, research and publishing all centered on transforming and being transformed. Garrett-Evangelical became a different place because of CBE and many students, staff, and faculty have come to Garrett-Evangelical because of CBE.

Inside this special issue you'll hear from President Lallene J. Rector, CBE's director, Dr. Angela Cowser, Black faculty members, and more. The work of CBE has transformed Garrett-Evangelical and together, with other like-minded and like-spirited people, within and beyond the church, CBE is on the forefront of creating a world in which all human beings live in dignity.
