History as Social Justice Activism: An Uncovering Parish Histories Report

June 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

In an effort to tell the truth about past injustice and point ourselves, our parishes, and our diocese towards a more just future, the Cathedral of the Incarnation and the Pro-Cathedral of St. Ann and the Holy Trinity Church host the second public report of the “Uncovering Parish Histories project” on Sunday, June 9, 6:00-7:00pm, over Zoom. The Rev. Dr. Craig Townsend, Historian-in-Residence for Racial Justice for the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island, and clergy and lay volunteers from several parishes, will discuss their explorations of the history of their parishes’ complicity in slavery and the slavery economy, as well as other periods of involvement in racial justice and injustice actions, and the spiritual import of that work. This historical research takes place under the auspices of Beloved Journey, an antiracism project of the Diocese of Long Island. All are welcome to join us virtually on June 9, 6:00 – 7:00pm Eastern at this zoom link.
