Walking with the Enslaved: The Church’s Role in Slavery

June 15 @ 8:30 am - 2:30 pm

In honor of Juneteenth, Nikki Fernandes and Rev. Ben Campbell will lead members from area Episcopal Churches on a walk along the Richmond Trail of Enslaved Africans followed by lunch and a facilitated group reflection.  The trail is nearly 3-miles, running from the Manchester Docks to Lumpkin’s Slave Jail, passing through the main historical locales of the domestic slave trade in Richmond.  The 2 ½ hour walk includes reflection and conversation over lunches at St. Paul’s on the role of the Church in Richmond’s domestic slave trade, the systemic impacts of this legacy in our city today, and how we are called to be truth-tellers and repairers of the breach now and into the future.

Gather to depart at St. Paul’s at 8:30 AM and return to Scott Hall for lunch and discussion.

Walking with the Enslaved is limited to 30 participants, if you’re unable to attend the walk you are invited to participate in the lunch and reflection by registering. Contact the Rev. Gwynn Crichton with any questions.
