Hidden History: How It Shapes Our Present and Our Future
September 18, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Please join us at REPAIR’s FREE September interactive program. It will include a viewing of the PBS program “The House We Live In: How the Racial Wealth Gap Was Created” and a deep dive into what it reveals about our own hidden histories, here in the Rivertowns and beyond.
In 2019-2020, REPAIR (Rivertowns Episcopal Parishes Action on Inclusion and Race) will be focused on our hidden history–as Americans, as residents of Westchester and, for many of us, as people of faith. How has history shaped our racial identities and relationships–in ways we recognize, and in ways we don’t? How does history affect our daily lives, the choices we make, and the opportunities we enjoy (or don’t enjoy)? And how are we called to change our lives so that the history of our future may be brighter than our past?
All are welcome. No religious affiliation or belief required. Snacks will be provided.
See us at facebook.com/repairrivertowns for more information on our meetings, events, and resources.
Upcoming FREE programs include: Discussion with Journalist David Margolick, author of Elizabeth and Hazel: Two Women of Little Rock and Strange Fruit: The Biography of a Song (Oct. 23rd, Trinity Church, Ossining).
And at Warner Library, Tarrytown on Nov. 13th, Jeffrey Sterling, one of the nation’s few African-American CIA agents, tells the story behind his new book, Unwanted Spy: The Persecution of an American Whistleblower.
