The Nyack College Writing Center will host a “Behind the Project” event featuring Jensy Acosta, an adjunct professor in Nyack’s Bible department on Monday, October 1, 2018 at the Nyack New York City campus at 2 Washington Street in Manhattan in Room 2037 from 4:00-6:00 PM. He will share from his lecture “A Biblical Call to Justice” based on Matthew 5:6. This event will include responses from panelists: and a dramatic reading of The Beatitudes.
