THE REVEREND DR. WALTRINA N. MIDDLETON has been at the forefront of action in response to the killings at Mother Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC, on the frontlines of faith leader counter protests in Charlottesville, VA, and the founding leader of Cleveland Action—a community-based organization involved in the aftermath of the murder of 12-year-old Tamir Rice. She has served as organizer with Diaspora Dialogues, Associate Dean of the Howard University Andrew Rankin Memorial Chapel, and National Minister for Youth Advocacy and Leadership Formation of the United Church of Christ. Rev. Middleton is a passionate preacher who holds fast to the principles of Ubuntu, which declares, “I am because we are. We are because God is.”
