Woodlands church to host racism forum, honor Civil Rights

From Texas-

This year marks the 150th anniversary of The Emancipation Proclamation, the 50th anniversary of the pivotal March on Washington, the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Medgar Evers and the 100th anniversary of the birth of Rosa Parks whose civil rights stand helped spawn the Montgomery Bus Strike. And in 1964 the Civil Rights Act was also signed into law.

In recognition of these milestones Trinity Episcopal Church in The Woodlands hosts a film and two taped panel discussions at 3 p.m. Friday in Butler Fellowship Hall entitled: “Fifty Years Later: The State of Racism in America”.

The workshop is a make-up showing of the film after the event had to be cancelled Nov. 15 and 16 due to technical issues.

Trinity Episcopal’s Mtr. Genevieve Razim and parishoner Judith Randolph will serve as on-site hosts and moderators for the live discussion following the film presentations. The film and taped panel discussions were recorded live on Nov. 15 from St. Andrews Episcopal Cathedral in Jackson, MS (Diocese of Mississippi).
