“The 1619 Project”
“The 1619 Project” is an ongoing initiative from The New York Times Magazine that began in August 2019, the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery. It aims to reframe the country’s history by placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of our national narrative. Join our District Superintendent, Russ Abel, in this 6 week study on Sundays, beginning Sept. 13, from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.. Copies of the material will be available in the church office. During the sessions, there will be discussions in both large-group and small-group breakout rooms, as well as a few essays each meeting. This will allow us to educate ourselves while sharing in meaningful dialogue.
