Baylor Connections - Kenyatta Gilbert and Malcolm Foley
Last month, Baylor unveiled statues honoring the University’s first Black graduates, Rev. Robert Gilbert and Barbara Walker. Despite physical limitations and the burdens of being a trailblazer, Rev. Gilbert served generations of students and his hometown of Waco.
In this Baylor Connections, his son, Dr. Kenyatta Gilbert expands on his father’s journey and impact. Dr. Gilbert, now a professor of homiletics at the Howard University Divinity School, is joined by Rev. Dr. Malcolm Foley, Special Advisor to the President for Equity and Campus Engagement and Director of Black Church Studies at Truett Seminary, sharing more about Baylor’s efforts to tell the University’s complete history and honor those trailblazers like Gilbert.
