Keynote Speaker: Rev. Dr. Angelique Walker-Smith, Senior Associate for Pan-African and Orthodox Church Engagement at Bread for the World, with "Slavery's Enduring Legacy of Disempowerment: 1619-2019".

This event will be a time of prayer, worship, Q & A, and music. In addition to hearing from our keynote speaker, we will reflect on those who gave their lives for justice, connect the Civil Rights Movement to our world today, and recommit to the Conference's goal to live out the conviction that racism is incompatible with Christian teaching . 

Dr. Walker-Smith  was the editor for a Pan Methodist monthly devotional guide commemorating the 2019 quad-centennial of the Forced Transatlantic Voyage of Enslaved Africans. Click here to learn more about the guide.  

A light supper will be served after closing worship.
