Our Black History Month program was held on Saturday, February 22nd. Dr. Wizdom Powell, a former White House Fellow under President Obama, presented an interesting, enlightening and thought provoking presentation. Her presentation was entitled “Breath, Eyes, Memory” – Reimagining racial trauma exposure, response and resiliency among African American boys and men.
In June, we erected a Little Pantry. It was installed in front of St. Philip’s to help support members of the Nickeltown community. Food donations are graciously collected from our members and distributed by volunteers.
In August, we came together weekly to read and discuss So You Want to Talk about Race. Baptized for Life organized this important group.
