Today’s Topic

Summer Services begin June 11: One Service Only at 10:00 a.m. 

Creating liberation takes many hands and continual effort to become a reality.

Join us as we hear stories of people whose lives intersected with the Emancipation Proclamation through historical vignettes. We’ll explore what the proclamation meant for enslaved people at the time and follow the thread to the present-day annual Juneteenth celebration.
