Repairing the Breach: History, Religion, and the Racial Divide

January 21, 2020 - 6 pm - 7:30 pm
The Virginia Museum of History and Culture - 428 N Arthur Ashe Blvd, Richmond, VA 23220

Join Coming to the Table RVA, in partnership with the Virginia Museum of History & Culture, for a discussion to commemorate the National Day of Racial Healing. Historian Dr. Ed Ayers, theologian Dr. Brian Blount, and special guest Dr. David Ragland, founder and co-director for the Truth Telling Project of Ferguson and the National Reparations Network, will participate in a panel discussion about racial healing moderated by Dr. Corey Walker, University of Richmond visiting professor and senior fellow for religious freedom at the Religious Freedom Center in Washington

This event will focus on reparations – repairing what is broken, not only in Richmond but in the nation, and will take a candid look at historical events, social activism and the role of the church in shaping the narrative on race – from the American Slave Trade to its current legacy. Don’t miss this important conversation exploring the church's role in both perpetuating and abolishing slavery, and the need for faith-rooted activism. Our panelists will also address the nation's moral debt debate on Reparations and the present opportunity to repair the harms that still exist today. Tickets for this event are $10 each.
