BLACK HISTORY MONTH
Throughout Black History Month, St. Joseph's has shared videos and information in support of people of color. BIPOC (Black Indigenous People of Color) are an integral part of the fabric of society and are a critical part of history. See below for videos and events in which you may participate.
THE BLACK CHURCH PANEL DISCUSSION
Join Union Theological Seminary on Thursday, February 25 from 5:30 – 7:00 pm for a free virtual event reflecting on the recent PBS film series The Black Church: This Is Our Story, This Is Our Song.
In partnership with THIRTEEN, Union Theological Seminary will screen highlights from the documentary and hear from The Very Rev. Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas, Dean of the Episcopal Divinity School at Union, and Josef Sorett, Professor of Religion and African American and African Diaspora Studies at Columbia University. The evening conversation will be moderated by, Jenna Flanagan, host of MetroFocus on THIRTEEN. Both Dean Douglas and Dr. Sorett are featured in the film.
Throughout the month of February, we have chosen to use hymns and videos in our services that highlight the artistry and experience of the people of the African Diaspora. Please enjoy a selection of these videos below.
