About the Kirk Symposium
The William Astor and Vivian T. Kirk Symposium Series celebrates the lives, legacies, and ministries of William & Vivian Kirk by educating, equipping, and empowering our community to live at the intersections of faith and social justice.
Dr. William A. Kirk, Jr. and his spouse, Vivian T. Kirk, were lifelong advocates for education and justice, committing their lives to the work of racial equity, LGBTQIA+ advocacy, and the desegregation of educational and denominational structures in the United States. Through his leaders on the Committee of Five, Dr. Kirk was instrumental in dismantling the Central Jurisdiction, a structure which effectively segregated the Methodist Church until 1968.
