As Charisse begins her new role, the bishop gives his deepest thanks for the leadership of Sheridan Quarless Kingsberry, a founding co-chair of the RJRC. Sheridan’s vision and energy have been absolutely instrumental in seeing the commission emerge from a hopeful concept to a concrete reality and to what it is now: an effective agent of awareness and change, built for the long-haul work of racial justice. There is no doubt that the commission is the positive force it is, in only two years, due to the impact and drive of Sheridan Quarless Kingsberry.
