Join the St. Francis of Assisi Episcopal Church in Prairie View for an enriching morning at the Men's Prayer Breakfast, featuring Dr. Mario Robinson, a distinguished academic and advocate for racial justice.

Simmons Center for Race and Justice at Prairie View A&M University, Dr. Robinson brings a wealth of knowledge, stemming from a career dedicated to education and a passion for social history. The event promises an invigorating start to your day with fellowship and insight, set to take place on April 20, 2024, at 8:30 a.m. at the welcoming Parish Hall of the church.

Dr. Robinson's journey from the rural landscapes of North Mississippi to the scholarly corridors of higher education exemplifies a commitment to lifelong learning and community engagement. His impressive academic path, marked by degrees from Jackson State University and the University of Mississippi, underpins his expertise in history and education. With his experience as a mentor in the PVAMU Honors Program, Dr. Robinson has not only contributed to academia but has also served as a guiding light for the next generation of scholars.

Dr. Robinson, with a history of prestigious scholarships, including a Fulbright stint in South Africa, and his involvement in extensive research initiatives—such as examining the intersection of culture and disaster management—will undoubtedly provide thought-provoking insights. His work extends to preserving local histories through digital platforms, ensuring that the experiences of African American communities in Waller County are not just remembered but also understood in the broader context of social justice.

The morning's proceedings will reflect the values and spirit of the dedicated team at St. Francis, represented by figures like Donald Sowell and his fellow coordinators, who continue to foster a space for reflection and connection.
