<<First Name>>, 

We want to invite you to view the live-stream of our Slave Auction Block Vigil: Honoring the Ancestors that will take place TODAY, Sunday at 2:30 pm. 
 
If you haven’t done so already, please register for this Zoom event here: https://bit.ly/2M5vwP9
 
We’re so grateful that community members Don Gathers, Cauline Yates, Dr. Jalane Schmidt, Apostle Sarah Kelley, Rev. Lehman Bates, Rev. Xavier Jackson, Kim Swift, and Dr. Kevin McDonald will offer presentations to the community. They will acknowledge the trauma which took place there and honor local enslaved ancestors through the words of enslaved persons, song, prayer, story-telling, reading of names, and ritual. Join us in reckoning with our collective history, and how it continues to inform and impact our lives. 

This event is sponsored by Beloved Community Cville and the African American Pastors Council with support from Virginia Humanities and WTJU.

Yours in service, 
Elizabeth Shillue and Michael Cheuk
