2022 Black History Month at St. Augustine's

As we enter February, we begin Black History Month. This year, we will recognize this important time in 2 ways:

First, we welcome the return of Stephanie Ball's musical gifts to our weekly worship. Stephanie is recording music that we will hear each week this month: 2 songs for us to sing along to, as well as brand new anthems each Sunday! Join us for worship via Zoom or Facebook Live to enjoy Stephanie's musical gifts!

Second, we will  welcome Deputy Director of the National Museum of African American History and Culture (and member of St. Augustine's!) Kinshasha Holman Conwill as she leads a special Sunday Forum on February 27th. Kinshasha will discuss Dr. Vincent Harding, African-American historian, scholar, and activist who focused on American religion and society. Dr. Harding is perhaps best known for his book There Is a River: The Black Struggle for Freedom in America. We will discuss his significance as a scholar and how is legacy can guide us in the struggle for justice today. Please note that this forum will be held on Zoom only (not Facebook Live). If you don't have our Zoom channel information, just email Rev. Scott and he will be happy to send it to you!
