Learning from Prophets Among Us:

Films about Episcopal Justice Pioneers

These two films explore the life and wisdom of Canon Ed Rodman, one of the most important Episcopal freedom-fighters alive today. From his teen years as a civil rights activist featured on the cover of Life magazine, to his tenure as a board member of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), to his role as a founder of the Union of Black Episcopalians and as primary author of the church’s anti-racism training, Rodman has shaped the church’s journey toward justice and beloved community for more than half a century.
