ABOUT THE REV. DR. JEREMIAH WRIGHT
Jeremiah Alvesta Wright Jr. was born on September 22, 1941, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and raised in a racially mixed section of Germantown.
Wright's father, the Rev. Jeremiah Alvesta Wright, was pastor at Grace Baptist Church from 1938 to 1980. His mother, Mary Elizabeth Henderson Wright, was a schoolteacher. She was the first black person to teach at Germantown High and Philadelphia High School, where she became the school's first black vice principal for girls. Wright took an interest in religion at an early age. His parents challenged him to balance “the intellectual with the spiritual.”
In 1959, Wright graduated from Central High School, which was among the best schools in the area at the time and was 90 percent white. After high school, Wright attended Virginia Union College, a historically black school in Richmond.
