LET’S TALK | BRIDGING THE DIVIDE - 400th Commemoration of Enslavement in America
This event has already finished but is here for your information
Join our panelists for a discussion centered around the arrival of the first documented slaves who landed in Jamestown, Virginia in 1619. The talk will also center around the 40 Days of Prayer for the liberation of American descendants of slavery. The 40 Days of Prayer begins on July 12th and ends on August 20th. Every daily reading during the 40 Days of Prayer will be about an actual account of slaves escaping on the Underground Railroad. The reading will share information about the slaves perceived age (as many did not know what their age was), and the atrocities they were running from. The information and research from the readings comes from the work of William Still.
