African American History Film Series

A six-session event beginning February 7, 2021

In recognition of Black History Month, the Race 4 Justice Team will be showing the 6-part PBS documentary The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross during February and March.

We will gather on Zoom at 1:30 on the following six Sundays:
   February 7, 14, 21, and
   March 7, 14, 21.
Each week we will watch a one-hour episode, after which Rev. Steven Protzman will lead a discussion.

 Written and presented by Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross chronicles the full sweep of the African-American experience, from the origins of the transatlantic slave trade to the reelection and second inauguration of President Barack Obama.  The series explores the evolution of the African-American people, as well as the multiplicity of cultural institutions, political strategies, and religious and social perspectives they developed — forging their own history, culture and society against unimaginable odds. 

The film is suitable for school-aged children, youth, and adults. So grab your after-church, after-RE lunch and use the Zoom link below to join in for the film and discussion.
