State of the Nation ~ State of the Faith

Chapel Hill has been working to be educated on personal and systemic racism through small groups and book study. On Thursday nights at 7 pm the conversation centers on a move toward national reparations and, more pointedly, toward the possibilities of Chapel Hill paying reparations for generational racism and the economic benefits still reaped through slavery and social marginalization.This is a weekly event via Zoom. Click HERE  for the Zoom link Thursday nights at 7pm.
