Otis' Dream

OTIS’ DREAM: The History of Voter Suppression Featuring Rev. Dr. Otis Moss, III

Dialogue

Otis' Dream

Our voice and our votes matter. Yet, for far too long Black people have been denied and hindered when trying to exercise their right to vote. In 1946, Otis Moss, Sr., the grandfather of Dr. Otis Moss, III, experienced much hardship when attempting to cast his ballot in rural Georgia. The struggle with voter suppression for the Black community continues to impact us today. This dialogue aims to show the power and impacting of voting and is a call to action for everyone to get active. Join us for a conversation for breaking down the vote, empowering participation in local elections, voting’s effect on funding, and more. When “Walking in Legacy”, we must look at voting as a piece of preparing for future progress and development. Rev. Dr. Otis Moss III Biography: Senior Pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, Ill., Dr. Otis Moss III is a preacher, activist and author. Over the last two decades, Dr. Moss has practiced and preached a Black theology that unapologetically calls attention to the problems of mass incarceration, environmental justice and economic inequality. Dr. Moss is committed to preaching a prophetic message of love and justice, which he believes are inseparable companions that form the foundation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Dr. Moss is an honors graduate of Morehouse College, and earned a Master of Divinity from Yale Divinity School, and a Doctor of Ministry from Chicago Theological Seminary. He returned to Yale in 2014 to present the famed Lyman Beecher lectures, which were the foundation of his 2015 book, Blue Note Preaching in a Post-Soul World: Finding Hope in an Age of Despair. Dr. Moss is highly influenced by the works of Zora Neale Hurston, August Wilson, Howard Thurman, Jazz, and hip-hop music. The work and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the pastoral ministry of his father, Dr. Otis Moss, Jr. of Cleveland, Ohio, have been primary mentors for his spiritual formation.
