Pitcher, Alvin

Al was Professor of Social Ethics at the University of Chicago Divinity School for over 22 years and an ordained Baptist minister. He spent five years on the staff of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference with Martin Luther King, Jesse Jackson and others.
But more importantly, as he said during the introduction to one of his sessions, he was "one for whom Christ had to die and one in whom more or less Christ lived insofar as He was why I was doing what I was doing."
(bio from 1974)
