The now late Reverend Clementa C. Pinckney was a magna cum laude graduate of Allen University with a degree in Business Administration. He also received his masters in public administration from the University of South Carolina and completed a Master’s of Divinity from the Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary.

Rev. Pinckney was first  elected to be a senator back in ’96 at only 23 years young. He was one of the youngest and one of the first African-American in South Carolina to be elected to the State Legislature. Washington Post columnist, David Broder, called Rev. Pinckney a “political spirit lifter for surprisingly not becoming cynical about politics.”

Professor Tom Mullikin had the pleasure to lead 60 doctoral students through South Carolina on a tour focused on studying the State’s civil rights. In this video, you can see Clementa Pinkney make a powerful speech to the students about civil rights.
