    For the last year Derrick Weston has been the pastor of the First Presbyterian Church and director of Antioch’s Coretta Scott King Center for Cultural and Intellectual Freedom.

In light of the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the fatal shooting of Florida teen Trayvon Martin, Weston said his work with young African Americans will be even more critical.
