Over the past eighty years, luminaries such as Maya Angelou, Desmond Tutu, and Billy Graham have spoken at the Chapel. Duke Chapel welcomed its first female preacher (Georgia Harkness) in 1939, its first Jewish rabbi (Morris Larzaron) in 1950, and its first African-American preacher (Samuel Proctor) in 1964. Many of the sermons from these famous preachers are available online.
