Rev. Barber at ECU

The outgoing leader of North Carolina’s NAACP who has now taken on the national Poor Peoples Campaign decried the current moral, political and spiritual state of the country and issued a call to action to a packed audience during a visit this week to East Carolina University.

The Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II spoke as part of the Distinguished Lecture Series on Religion and Culture, a free offering from ECU’s Religious Studies Program. The title of his lecture was “Poor People’s Campaign and National Call for Moral Revival.” The lecture was hosted in the Hendrix Theatre of the Mendenhall Student Center, and students received a passport credit for attending the event. According to organizers, the lecture was sold out and the theater was filled.
