He is the founding Chair of the 1917 Centennial Commission & Cultural Initiative, Inc. The Commission coordinated activities commemorating the 1917 East St. Louis Race Riots, bringing to light the circumstances and aftermath of the bloody pogrom which was one of the most significant examples of domestic terrorism in U.S. history.

Teaching True Truth is a project of the Peace and Justice Commission at the Rock Church. The project focuses on education about the history of racism, and about teaching, as Sr. Thea Bowman says, the “true truth” about that history.
