On March 12 – 13, Peace United Church of Christ and St. Mark A.M.E. are hosting “Living into the Difficult: Race, Diversity, and Duluth for All” along with the partner sponsors: CHUM, First United Methodist, Pilgrim Congregational Church, Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, and St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.
Join A.M.E. pastor and professor of religion and ethics Dr. Melanie Harris and professor of religion and American Baptist Minister Dr. Jennifer Harvey as they guide us in a racial justice analysis of our community and the spectrum of ways we are called to heal from structural violence and racism as people of faith.
Reparations for the injuries perpetrated upon African Americans through America’s slave enterprise is a subject that is receiving serious attention by clergy and lay leadership of some of Duluth’s predominantly white congregations and St. Mark A.M.E.. Together we will delve into a reparations model focused on community action steps in Duluth.
