This Black History Month, we will be honoring a cross-section of Union’s Black alums and faculty. Today we honor Rev. Madison Shockley ’86, Pastor of the Pilgrim United Church of Christ, CA. He is the first African American minister of a predominantly Anglo congregation in the Southern California Conference of the UCC. Rev. Shockley recently directed a significant gift, from the Swacker Family Foundation, to support Union’s new concentration, Religion and the Black Experience.
