Is "liberty and justice for all" a reality or an empty declaration?
Join us for an evening exploration of social justice and the question of liberty in the United States, historically and right now. The program will open with the words of African-American poet Langston Hughes in "Let America be America Again" and musician Nina Simone in "Mississippi Goddam." What comes up for us in response to these pieces? How do we feel? We will then listen and contemplate the teachings of civil rights activist Vincent Harding in "Is America Possible?" Throughout the evening, we will pause for meditation, self-reflection, and sharing to support our explorations. The program will close with a discussion of additional resources including an invitation to join the five-week series, Exploring Race, at The Dancing Elephant.
Everyone is welcome.
