Graphic reads Learn, Verify, and Share: Reparations: How to Investigate Your Parish's History with Racism

In this brief video, archivist and parishioner at St. Thomas’, Croom, Franklin Robinson, Jr., discusses three steps that can help congregations investigate their parish’s history with institutional racism. “Discover, verify, and share,” he says, and “…Engage in truth telling, not truth judging.”

This fall, the diocese will host Repairing the Breach: A Symposium on Reparations to continue our shared work in reckoning with our diocesan history of participation in anti-Black racism. To help prepare congregations and leaders for the symposium, we’ll continue to share videos about reparations and we invite you to participate in the two-session course offered through the School for Christian Faith and Leadership, Repairing the Breach Course: An Exploration of Reparations.
