The new books will be housed in the school’s main library, the James E. Cheek Learning and Resource Center.

Professor of religion and director of women’s studies, Cheryl Kirk-Duggan stated that “receiving a volume like this, helps to facilitate learning, allows students to serve God and their communities, and helps students develop the capacity for analysis, critical thinking, and writing.”

Dr. Kirk-Duggan holds a bachelor’s degree in voice and piano, a master of music degree in voice, a master of divinity degree, and a Ph.D. in religion. She is the author of over 20 books including Wake Up: Hip Hop, Christianity, and the Black Church (Abingdon Press, 2011).
