Describing Reverend Dr. William J. Barber, II’s speech at URJ Biennial 2017 in one word is easy: prophetic. Rev. Dr. Barber, who has been called “today’s strongest contender for [Dr. Martin Luther] King’s mantle” by the New York Times, gave a powerful, inspirational, and compelling speech. Don’t believe me? Here’s what some attendees said:
“The American project has never been easy...it is hard, but we cannot give up on the soul of this democracy.“ - Reverend Dr. William J. Barber, II #URJBiennial— Avra Bossov (@Avracado) December 7, 2017
