Friday, November 15, 2013 to Saturday, November 16, 2013

The Episcopal Church will devote two days to the exploration of a critical topic: Fifty Years Later: The State of Racism in America.

This year marks significant landmark anniversaries in the struggle to end discrimination, provide equal rights and combat racism: the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, the 50th anniversary of the pivotal March on Washington, the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Medgar Evers, the 100th birthday of Rosa Parks.  In 1964 the Civil Rights Act was signed into law.

On November 15, The Episcopal Church will host and produce the 90 minute live forum in collaboration with the Diocese of Mississippi. The forum will be held at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Cathedral in Jackson, MS beginning at 1 pm Central (2 pm Eastern, noon Mountain, 11 am Pacific, 10 am Alaska, 9 am Hawaii).

There is no fee to view this live forum.  Access is available through the Episcopal Church website: www.episcopalchurch.org/stateofracism.

Questions for the panelists can be emailed prior or during the forum to Neva Rae Fox, Public Affairs Officer, at publicaffairs@episcopalchurch.org.

Fifty Years Later: The State of Racism in America is ideal for live group watching and discussion, or on-demand viewing later.  It will be appropriate for Sunday School, discussions groups, and community gatherings.

Saturday workshops

On November 16, faith leaders and educators will gather to discuss and create curriculum and tools on the topics raised in Friday’s forum. The day-long event will be held at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Cathedral in Jackson, MS.
