Zoom Meeting ID: 990 6080 9545 Passcode: 264326
We are excited to tell you about a new initiative being offered by the URC Legacies of Slavery task group…
Black History is so important to our shared story that we surely can’t confine it to one month a year. We need to break out and make it something we keep learning about and exploring. So, here in the United Reformed Church we’ve decided to take a dip into Black History every month of 2021, from February onwards.
Each month we’ll identify a particular nugget or sweeping overview of Black History which we’ll all be encouraged to review for ourselves, then we’ll come together on Zoom to share an hour’s discussion, exploring and teasing out how it affects all of us in our situations and settings today.
The series commenced with a look at Ava Duvernay’s documentary ’13th’available for free viewing on You Tube.
February is Black History Month in the USA, so we started with Ava DuVernay’s Netflix Documentary about the woeful and unremitting effects over 150 years of the exception clause in the Anti-slavery 13th amendment to the U. S. Constitution. Currently, it’s available for free viewing on YouTube. Find it by searching on You Tube for “13th documentary”
