A Journey Toward Reconciliation: Understanding the Role Our Churches Played in Massive Resistance to Desegregation

Thursday, August 29th, 2019 
6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
 REGISTRATION REQUIRED 


Part one of a two-part program that explores how the community’s response contributed to Virginia’s “Massive Resistance” laws defying attempts at public school desegregation, particularly after the Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision in 1954.

A panel - including Rev. James Kilby, Pastor of First Baptist Church in Washington, VA; Betty Leckie, Former Warren County Teacher (1959 - 1960); Dr. J. Michael Utzinger, Elliott Professor of Religion, Chair of the Dept. of Religion at Hampden-Sydney College - will discuss the impact of this period on families and community institutions within Warren County. Special emphasis will be focused on how community churches were placed in the center of the civil rights struggle resulting from Brown regardless of the affirmation or dissent of local ministers and parishioners.

Sponsored by Front Royal/Warren County Ministerial Association, Coming to the Table, Samuels Public Library and FOSL. Register for this event online.
