Rev. Kevin Peterson
Straddling the public domains of faith, public reason, and politics, the Rev. Kevin C. Peterson is a Boston-based activist committed to advancing justice and good works in the public square. Trained and educated as a community activist, a writer, an organizer, and a public speaker, Rev. Peterson, founder of the New Democracy Coalition, addresses matters of civic life and democracy through public witness and engagement.
He is a policy advocate, community and corporate convener, and a grassroots civic activist comfortable in the classroom and with dialogue on the corners of embattled neighborhoods. Peterson principally focuses upon voter equality and racial equity for African Americans and Blacks throughout the African-American diaspora. He is gifted in the areas of diversity, equity, and inclusion discussions and corporate problem-solving relating to fairness. His sensibilities around fairness are grounded in a Blues-Jazz-and-Gospel-African-inflected worldview as exhibited through the life of Jesus and others such as Prathia Hall, James Reeb, John Brown, Dr. Gardner Taylor, John Coltrane, Harriet Tubman, James Baldwin, Nimi Wariboko, Cornel West, Ralph Ellison, Martin Luther King Jr., Billie Holiday, August Wilson, Dr. J, Romare Bearden, Toni Morrison, and C.T. Vivian.
