Understanding Social Injustice Through the Power of Place

You are invited! The season of Lent invites us to examine our relationship with God and with each other.  Join us as we explore the space we live in, both as individuals and as members of Plymouth congregation, during four Saturday morning sessions. The Center Street Story: An Urban Renewal Retrospective is the documentary by Community Legacy Matters, LLC that we will use for our guided discussions via zoom.

Our guide will be Dr. Madison DeShay-Duncan. In addition to her doctoral work in Social and Cultural Studies and Education, Dr. DeShay-Duncan has earned an MA in Community and Regional Planning, as well as her undergraduate degree in Sociology. Her background will provide attendees with astute insight into urban renewal as it affected one local African American community.

As we examine our collective conscience, participants will seek to better understand what it means to be a neighbor, how we can build bridges across color lines, and what is the specific role for Plymouth church in this work?

Hold the dates! Mark your calendars for these four important Saturday morning sessions: March 6, 13, 20 and 27. Participation is free but limited to Plymouth church members. We hope to see you there!
