Monthly on Saturdays 2.13.21. | 11 am | Via Zoom (Please register by the Friday before)
We keep seeing more about justice in America and our elected leaders. It wasn’t until 2017 in Rev. Michael Livingston’s sermon that I learned of this history about George Washington our nation’s first president, Founding Father: He and his wife Martha Washington’s relentless pursuit of their runaway slave Ona/Oney Judge. What will strike you initially, I believe, are the Washingtons’ unrelenting malevolence & trickery in circumventing the laws prohibiting slavery in certain states.
What will also strike you — as it did me — as you learn more: How intertwined are profit, greed, and the economy of generational wealth (as enslaved Africans were the most valuable of all other inheritable assets) with the ideology of racial dominance.
COME JOIN US. Rev. Michael Livingston & Rev. Bruce Lamb will co-facilitate our discussion.
