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.
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.
