This convocation will celebrate Berea’s interracial history by honoring Berea alumnus Reverend Kirke Smith, a visionary African American who was instrumental in the creation of the Lincoln Institute in 1910 and who served as the first Dean of the Normal Department and also Dean of Men until 1935. His life of distinguished service reflects the ideals and vision of John G. Fee. President Shinn will present the John G. Fee Award to Rev. Smith’s grandchildren. The Black Music Ensemble will also perform. Sponsored by the President’s Office.
