The road from slavery to freedom, to justice and ending racism has been paved with progress and setbacks. Jim Crow created two seperate and unequal societies during the first half of the 20th century. Then the actions of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s confronted these systems directly, resulting in landmark legislation that bent the arc of the moral universe every closer towards justice. Again today we are faced with a moment of clarity, when the increased visibility of police shootings of people of color and the disproportionate impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have laid bare the inequities that remain. As it was in the 1960s, it is today's new and emerging voices that will be the ones that carry the movement forward to realize the results of current activism. Hearing from these voices is essential for those seeking to partner in this important work.
Join us as we hear from new and emerging faith voices on the role of the Church in the fight to end racism and in moving our nation from a moment of consciousness to a movement with real systemic change.
