Black History 365

St. Luke’s (Cambridge), St. Thomas the Apostle (Cambridge), All Saints’ (Windsor) and F.O.C.U.S. are proud to present:

Black History 365 

In “Black History 365”, a two-part virtual discussion co-facilitated by the Reverend Steve Greene and educator/historian Irene Moore Davis, we will examine the history of anti-Black racism with special emphasis on the Canadian context; the influence the church, as an institution, has had on developing concepts of race and racism from the Renaissance Period  through the present day;  how people of faith can successfully  navigate today’s difficult race relations challenges, pursue racial understanding, healing, and reconciliation, and work against anti-Black racism in  practical but meaningful ways, Black Canadian historical highlights will also be discussed.

Wednesday Feb 16 (7:00pm – 8:30pm) and Wednesday Feb 23 (7:00pm – 8:00pm) via Zoom.

If you’re interested in being part of these critical workshops, please contact Rev. Greene ([email protected]) to be registered.
