Description

Reverend Cecil Williams, one of the country’s most renowned and provocative ministers, and Janice Mirikitani, his wife, founding president and San Francisco’s second Poet Laureate, together have led San Francisco’s Glide Memorial Church toward profound social change for the past half-century. Throughout the decades, Reverend Williams has been at the heart of many important historic events including the civil rights movement, the Harvey Milk assassination and the Patty Hearst kidnapping. In Beyond the Possible: 50 Years of Creating Radical Change in a Community Called Glide, they share stories that reveal how Glide became the spiritual soul of San Francisco – and one of the city’s most generous providers of social services.

"Glide is America’s church – the only church I know where you see all races, all classes, coming together in service."
– Oprah Winfrey
