This Black History Month, we will be honoring a cross-section of Union’s Black alums and faculty. Today, we honor the Rev. Dr. LaKeesha Walrond ’14, the first woman and the first African American woman to be the president of @newyorktheologicalseminary. When @lakeeshawalrondphd was appointed, she told Sojourners that she is pleased “to have the opportunity to show all women that there are still many opportunities to be the first.” Previously she was executive pastor of @fcbcnyc for more than 10 years.
