France A. Davis, pastor of the Calvary Baptist Church of Salt Lake City, delivered the Gaskin Lecture at Oklahoma Baptist University Oct. 2. His topic was “The History of African American Baptist Churches in Oklahoma from 1990 to Present.”

The J.M. Gaskin Lectureship was established by friends of Dr. J.M. Gaskin and advocates of the preservation of Oklahoma Baptist history and heritage. The lectureship was designed to promote the study of Oklahoma Baptist history to students at OBU, many of whom will be future leaders of churches in the state. Others interested in Oklahoma Baptist history and heritage are invited to attend these lectures.
