The Wright Amendment: He's Not Coming to Dallas After All
Well, that was fast. This morning came word that Rev. Jeremiah Wright's scheduled Saturday appearances at Friendship-West Baptist Church and Paul Quinn College might not take place due to "security concerns." Now, on the same Web site to which we directed you yesterday concerning the change of venue -- the event was initially scheduled to take place on the TCU campus, as the Brite Divinity School was doing the honoring -- there's the following note:
A Brite Divinity School official has received notice that Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. will not attend the State of the Black Church Summit and Awards Banquet. All events scheduled for Friday and Saturday will continue as planned. The new location of the Summit is Paul Quinn College. The Awards Banquet will be held at Friendship-West Baptist Church.
A media release with further explanation is due shortly. --Robert Wilonsky
