Webinar to Help Guide our Journey into Reparations
September 28, 2021
The Diocese of New Jersey has established a Reparations Task Force to study how we as a diocese may address the original sins of racism and slavery. New Jersey was central to the slave trade in America, and many of our churches were established and supported directly or indirectly by the institution of slavery. The Task Force was established at our annual convention.
As part of ongoing education for members of the Reparations Taskforce and the Diocese of New Jersey we are planning to host a panel discussion via Zoom entitled “Journeying Towards Reparations II.”
The panel will feature Assistant Professor Kendra Boyd and Digital Archivist Jesse Bayker both from Rutgers University who will share with us their knowledge of the African American racial history within New Jersey as developed through their research and publications at Rutgers University.
The panel presentation is scheduled for Tuesday September 28 at 7:00 pm. We have invited the Reverend Charles Wynder Jr. as moderator to engage in an hour-long conversation followed by questions from the attendees.
