Bruton Parish examines race in three-day event

From Virginia-

Bruton Parish Episcopal Church will host a series of events, "Race and The Church," over Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday weekend. The church invites the community, and other churches, to join in the dialogue.

In reaction to events across the country, particularly the shootings at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, S.C., Bruton Parish desired to take action on race relations, said parishioner Isabel Burch, who helped plan the program.

"This is our first step," Burch said.

Bruton Parish coordinated with filmmaker Katrina Browne and Williamsburg's First Baptist Church to present three events from Jan. 14-16.
