Witte to receive prestigious award from German university

John Witte, Jr., Robert W. Woodruff Professor of Law, McDonald Distinguished Professor, and director of the Center for the Study of Law and Religion at Emory University, will receive the James W.C. Pennington Award in June from the Heidelberg Center for American Studies and the Department of Theology at the University of Heidelberg. The award honors a former slave who escaped his abusive master and became the first African American to attend Yale University. He became a writer, minister, theologian, abolitionist, and international symbol of freedom.
