Dr. Mitchell and his beloved wife, Rev. Dr. Ella Pearson Mitchell were among our first Beautiful Are The Feethonorees in 2004. The Mitchells were among our most ardent supporters and contributors. Dr. Ella Pearson, joined the ancestors in 2008 and her legacy of teaching and preaching has been embodied in the honorees who followed, as well as the rising Womanist Theologians who attend the annual SDPC gatherings.
In honor of the Mitchells’ legacy of teaching and preaching, the Ella P. and Henry H. Mitchell Fund for Theological Education has been formed. The main goal of the Fund is to fully endow the Eunice C. Jackson & Ella P. Mitchell Chair for Women and Religion at Union Theological Seminary. Named for the first two African American women to graduate from Union Theological Seminary, Jackson in 1940, and Mitchell in 1943, both with a Master of Arts degree in Christian Education, the Chair will be held by a scholar committed to the interdisciplinary exploration of the intersections of religion, race, gender, and women’s studies. The Fund will also provide scholarships for young seminarians at historically Black institutions or programs directed at multicultural religious experiences.Visit the Fund website for more information or to donate www.mitchellfund.org.
Join us as send well wishes and sing Happy Birthday to Dr. Mitchell!
