Join us Saturday, February 24th, at 10 am as The Social Justice Ministry proudly presents a transformative event: the viewing of an episode from the groundbreaking 1619 Project Docuseries, titled "Fear." This series represents a pivotal moment in our nation's history, aiming to redefine our collective narrative by placing the legacy of slavery and the invaluable contributions of Black Americans at its core.
Led by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones, The 1619 Project initiative has sparked critical conversations and deep reflections across the country. Now, we invite you to delve into this essential discourse with us.
Our esteemed guest panelists, including Dr. Alex Byrd, Vice Provost for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Rice University, Dr. Howard Henderson, Founding Director of the Center for Justice Research at Texas Southern University, and Maggie Luna, Director for TimeDone Texas Chapter and Outreach Coordinator, will enrich our understanding through their expertise and insights.
Following the viewing, we'll engage in a thought-provoking panel discussion. We extend a warm invitation to you to join us in person for this enlightening event. Together, let us delve into the history of the prison pipeline and its enduring impact on our communities. Your presence and participation are integral as we strive for greater awareness, empathy, and action in pursuit of justice.
