Bentley College Will Hold Rainbow Breakfast

September 16, 1999

Waltham- Bentley College will hold a Rainbow Breakfast: Celebrating Bentley College Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered Community and Allies, on Tuesday, October 12, 1999, from 8:30-10:30 a.m. in the Adamian Graduate Center Commons. Reverend Kim Crawford Harvie, Senior Minister of the Arlington Street Church, will be the keynote speaker and a group from the Boston Gay Men's Chorus will perform. The event is sponsored by Bentley's Sexual Orientation Action Team and the President's Office For Equal Opportunity. As seating is limited, RSVPs are required by October 1 to Mary Marcel, 781-891-2054.

Reverend Harvie is only the 16th senior minister to occupy Boston's historic Arlington Street Church pulpit since 1729 and the 12th since William Ellery Channing (1803-1842) preached against slavery and set the church on its socially activist path. This path continued into the 1960's and led to the march on Selma in which a church member was killed. The path also led to the church being the location of the first organized draft card burning during the anti-Vietnam era to the present congregation's commitment to diversity in all its manifestations.

Directions to Bentley College are available on the web at: www.bentley.edu or by phone at 781-891-2100.
