NBCDI Welcomes Rev. Terrance McKinley

The National Black Child Development Institute (NBCDI) is pleased to announce that Reverend Terrance McKinley has joined the leadership team as Vice President of Movement Building and Strategy. He brings an extraordinary depth of experience with accolades from national and reputable organizations. Rev. McKinley has a proven commitment to faith and justice and has successfully mobilized communities around critical issues.

Rev. McKinley has demonstrated transformative national leadership in advocacy, public policy, campaigns, racial justice, and civil and human rights. Most recently, he led on the team of the LIFT Project, a justice effort aimed at combatting the centuries-long history of vilifying Black people and other communities through the spread of harmful narratives that deepen racial hierarchy. He has also co-led multiple federal and state-based advocacy efforts.

In recognition of his tireless dedication and lifelong commitment to service, Rev. McKinley received the 2023 President of the United States of America, Joseph R. Biden Juneteenth President’s Achievement Award. He holds degrees from Cornell University and Princeton Theological Seminary.

NBCDI is elated and confident that Rev. McKinley’s expertise will be instrumental in guiding our organization forward as we continue to mobilize communities and ignite movements on the strengths of Black people.

We are grateful to have Rev. McKinley join the team!
