Two of our CCDA Leaders relfect on the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
|Zakiya Jackson has been involved in Christian Community Development for over 10 years, working in education, youth and leadership development and social entrepreneurship. Zakiya is a lover of words—and creatively uses them by entertaining her friends with stories, speaking or performing in front of a crowd or contemplatively writing poems and blogs. Nashville is her hometown but you can now find her all over the US, traveling for work and for visiting her incredible nieces, nephews and other family members.
|Dominique DuBois Gilliard was born and raised in metro Atlanta. He completed his undergraduate studies in the heart of Atlanta, at Georgia State University, where he double majored in History and African American Studies. After graduating, he went on to earn a Master’s in history, with an emphasis on race, gender, and class in the U.S., focusing on the 19th – 21st Centuries. While he planned on pursuing his Ph.D in history after graduating, God summoned him to attend North Park Theological Seminary. He earned his Master’s of Divinity from North Park and went on to teach courses at the seminary in the fields of Christian Ethics, Theology and Reconciliation. Dominique serves on the board of directors for the Christian Community Development Association (CCDA) and as the director of racial reconciliation pilgrimages for the Pacific Southwest Conference of the ECC.|
