Bridging The Gap: Truthful Conversations & Racial Healing

Clergy Life-Long Learning

Join us to hear the remarkable story of the Rev. Avery Hamilton and Mr. Dean Woods, two men from different backgrounds who have come together to honor the legacy of the Colfax Massacre. The massacre, which occurred in 1873 in Grant Parish, Louisiana, resulted in the deaths of over 60 Black men who were asserting their constitutional rights. Up until now, it has largely been forgotten in the retelling of history.

All are welcome to participate in this informative and inspirational event! Clergy will gather after the reception for a Q&A session.
