Gospel Music Superstar: Kirk Franklin is boycotting the The Dove Awards.
In a recent post on social media, Instagram Franklin, who considers The Doves to be the "Grammys" for Christian Music, and refers to The Stellars as The Grammys for Gospel Music...mentions that in 2016 he won the award for Best Gospel Artist. In his acceptance speak, he made reference to families that had been affected by gun violence and even offered prayer for their families on the air. When the Doves aired the show, Franklin's speech was edited and did not reflect the concerns he conveyed.
Franklin reached out to the Doves and Trinity Broadcasting Network(TBN), for answers, and was not responded to.
Fast forward to 2019 Dove Awards, Franklin wins the same award, in this acceptance speak, he again makes similar reference to other families that had been affected by gun violence, offered prayer to the families affected as well as the families of the shooters. Again, his speech was edited.
Kirk Franklin said: "Not only did they edit my speech, but they edited the African American experience..."
As of today, Kirk Franklin...until further notice or action, is boycotting The Dove Awards. He states, that's he is NOT asking the Gospel Community to follow him in his boycott.
Kirk Franklin further stated: "In the end...we will not remember the words of our enemies...but the silence of our friends".

The Attire; superhero tees, denim and converse sneakers
At a special Congregational meeting on Sunday, April 7, 2019, the Allen Temple Baptist Church made history by voting to elect Dr. Jacqueline A. Thompson as its’ new Senior Pastor – the ninth Senior Pastor and the first woman to ever serve in this capacity in the 100 year history of this pioneering congregation.
Pastor Thompson, a native of the Bay Area, first joined the Allen Temple Baptist Church at the age of twelve and was an active member and leader across multiple ministries. In March of 1995, Dr. Thompson accepted her call to ministry and was subsequently licensed to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ in July of 1995 and ordained to the ministry in October of 1998 by Reverend Dr. J. Alfred Smith, Sr., Pastor Emeritus of the Allen Temple Baptist Church. Her educational accomplishments include a Bachelor of Arts from the University of California Berkeley, Masters of Divinity with honors from Howard University, and a Doctor of Ministry in African American Church Leadership from Fuller Theological Seminary.
In March 2010, Dr. Thompson was installed as Allen Temple’s Assistant Pastor; the first woman to serve in that capacity. Previously, she served as the Minister of Community Outreach/Executive Director of the Henry C. Gregory Family Life Center Foundation at the Shiloh Baptist Church of Washington, DC and the Minister of Youth at Shiloh Baptist Church of Washington, DC.
Pastor Thompson is a highly sought preacher and speaker, having preached, taught and developed firm relationships across denominational lines as well as in mainstream civic and political organizations across the United States and the Caribbean. She has had the privilege of preaching in many arenas previously uncharted by women.
