What do We Believe
I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ His only son our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried; the third day He rose from the dead; He ascended into Heaven and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.  AMEN.

Actor and Human Rights Activist to Speak at Lane College Commencement

(April 8, 2016 – Jackson, TN) Lane College President Logan Hampton today announced that noted actor and human rights activist Danny Glover will be the guest speaker at its Spring Commencement Convocation, to be held at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 30, 2016, at Oman Arena. One Hundred and Seventy-Five excited young scholars will be awarded baccalaureate degrees in the Arts and Sciences. 

Danny Glover is an American actor who trained at the Black Actors’ Workshop of the American Conservatory Theater. It was his Broadway debut in Fugard’s Master Harold…and the Boys, which brought him to national recognition and led director Robert Benton to cast Glover in his first leading role in 1984’s Oscar-nominated Best Picture Places in the Heart. He came into his own as Mel Gibson’s co-star in the Lethal Weapon films in the 1980s and 1990s, but gained his first major success in 1985 in Alice Walker’s The Color Purple, where he portrayed the brutish and unloving character known as Mister. A versatile actor, Glover has played villains and heroes in all types of films, notably in Lethal Weapon (1987) and its sequels (1989, 1992, and 1998).

Glover has also gained respect for his wide-reaching community activism and philanthropic efforts, with a particular emphasis on advocacy for economic justice, and access to health care and education programs in the United States and Africa. For these efforts, he received a 2006 DGA Honor. Internationally, Glover has served as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Development Program from 1998-2004, focusing on issues of poverty, disease, and economic development in Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean, and serves as UNICEF Ambassador.

The public is invited to attend the convocation and is asked to be seated no later than 9:30 a.m.
