The “Father of Christian Rock” and one of the key figures of the Jesus People Movement, Larry Norman left his mark on history as an evangelist and artist who used his talents to present the Gospel in the vernacular of the late ’60s and ’70s youth culture. His songs have been translated into over a dozen languages and recorded by over 300 artists. Friends and fans include Bono, Frank Black, Malcolm Muggeridge, and Francis Schaeffer, among others.
Please stop by the Library Lobby and see the exhibit. It will be on display until the end of June.
Jackson Wilcox is an American Baptist pastor, artist, writer, and editor with a ministry career spanning over six decades. At each congregation served he published church newsletters illustrated with his distinctive cartoons and drawings. As a pastor in Hollywood during the Jesus People Movement, he produced a number of cartoons that were published in the Hollywood Free Paper. This collection provides a unique window into the effort to make the Gospel accessible to the distracted youth in the cultural turmoil between 1968-1980.
The Jackson Wilcox Collection at the David Allan Hubbard Library includes cartoons, newsletters, sermon notebooks, newspaper columns, and other materials documenting the ministry of Jackson Wilcox. Come by and look at the exhibition while you sip a cup of joe and delay writing that midterm!
