Publisher's Description

From the earliest meetings of the Civil Rights Movement to offering the benediction for the first African American President of the United States, Rev. Dr. Joseph Lowery has been an eyewitness to some of the most significant events in our history. But, more important, he has been a voice that speaks truth to power--inspiring change that moves us forward.

In Singing the Lord's Song in a Strange Land, you will find Dr. Lowery's most enduring speeches and messages from the past fifty years including Coretta Scott King's funeral and the benediction given at President Obama's inauguration. This book, however, is not simply a collection of words. It is the heart of a movement and a call to a new generation to carry the mantle--for all people.

Author Bio

Joseph E. Lowery, a minister in the United Methodist Church, is an activist in the American civil rights movement.  He served as the third president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference from 1978-1998, after Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King and his immediate successor, Rev. Dr. Ralph David Abernathy, and participated in most of the major activities of the African-American Civil Rights Movement of the '60s.
In addition to speaking at Coretta Scott King’s funeral and giving the benediction at President Barack Obama’s inauguration, Rev. Joseph E. Lowery is most recently noted for winning the Presidential Medal of Freedom. His numerous other awards include: the NAACP award at its 1997 convention for “dean of the civil rights movement,” and Lifetime Achievement Award.  He also received the Martin Luther King Jr. Center Peace Award and the National Urban League’s Whitney M. Young, Jr. Lifetime Achievement Award in 2004.  Ebony has named him one of the 15 greatest black preachers. 
Lowery has also received several honorary doctorates from colleges and universities.  In addition, he was given the Fred L. Shuttlesworth Human Rights Award by the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. On his 80th birthday in 2001, the city of Atlanta changed the name of Ashby Street to Joseph E. Lowery Boulevard, Atlanta Public Schools established the Joseph E. Lowery Lecture Series on Civic Engagement and Clark Atlanta University founded the Joseph E. Lowery Institute for Justice & Human Rights. Henri Giles is a writer and award-winning television producer based near Nashville.  She works on national television programs and produces projects for corporations and non-profit organizations.

Publisher's Weekly

Lowery, past president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and a Presidential Medal of Freedom winner, is a candid preacher of sermons embroidered with colloquial humor, blending verve and reverence for God while pressing for social change without sounding pedantic. These 26 speeches, sermons, and reflections touch on topics from economic empowerment to ending racism both to benefit blacks and to liberate whites from the burden of prejudice. Lowery is effective in sermonizing when he offers a clear message for others to follow; he is less so when he reacts from the pulpit to news events like Bill Clinton’s affairs. The many themes of the book--honoring the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, political change, and the disenfranchised perspective of black boys are just a few--weaken the collection because the chronological order of the sermons doesn’t mirror the urgency or timeliness with which so many of them were delivered. Many of the sermons take their audiences to the mountaintops or to float along a river, but a few are thin and out of place in the collection and probably should have been omitted. (Feb.)
