Title

Article "Pike's Widow, 'Freedom Rider' To Speak at UIC Symposium"

Description

In this 1969 Collegian article, the speakers of the UIC's (University Interfaith Council) symposium are featured. Mrs. Dianne Kennedy Pike, wife of the late Dr. James A. Pike, and associate professor of religion at Wesley University, Dr. John David Maguire, will be speaking. Mrs. Pike is described as the director of the New Focus Foundation, which was started by her late husband. The foundation is attempting to understand the communication of religious ideals outside the institutional structure of the church. Dr. Maguire was a former Freedom Rider, and was imprisoned in 1961 for "challenging segregated terminal facilities." He was a long time friend of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and was asked after his assassination to take leadership of organizing a memorial. The article explains how he teaches at Wesleyan University in theology and history of religious thought.
