Invite your friends for shared reflection following the two-part PBS series “The Black Church: This is our story, this is our song” by scholar and educator, Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

Post-series reflection for the community

Thursday, February 25, 7-8PM, on Zoom

The two-part series traces the history of the Black church in America. The reflection the week after the series concludes is an opportunity to share with one another what we learned, and, for those who have worshipped regularly with a US Black church, to tell us how their experience compares to that described in the series.

This reflection time is offered as part of Community UCC’s ongoing commitment to having Sacred Conversations on Race and is sponsored by CUCC’s Racial Justice Affinity Google Group. For more information, contact Jane Smith at
