THE ROAD HOME
A SPIRITUAL PILGRIMAGE TO THE SOUTH
with Kate Stevens
October 21 ~ 4-5:30 p.m.
Edwards Church of Northampton
297 Main Street
Though this country prides itself on principles of democracy and justice for all, in actuality the U.S. was founded on the practices of genocide and slavery. Stevens, who recently undertook a three-month, 6,000 mile pilgrimage to the Southern states to better understand our racial history, uses pictures and words to follow the history of Africans brought to this land by force—a history of slavery, war, racial violence, segregation, and now mass incarceration. This history, while devastating, is also a story of resistance and determination. Please join us, and share in this conversation. Sponsored by the Board of Faith Formation.
