Local Group Gathering: Williamsburg, VA
February 22 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm EST
Join us in the CTTT Local Affiliate Group in Virginia’s Historic Triangle.
We generally meet the third Tuesday of each month at Jamestown Christian Fellowship Church in Williamsburg. However, in February, we are collaborating with a local historic site on a Black History Month program, so moving our meeting to Saturday, February 22 at Freedom Park Interpretive Center. Bill Sizemore will lead a discussion about his book, Uncle George and Me.
Serving Jamestown, Williamsburg and Yorktown, we offer a safe place to have open and honest dialogue about race relations in the Historic Triangle region and to work towards healing from racial wounds that are rooted in the United States history of slavery, which began in Jamestown.
We are coming together to sit down at the table of brotherhood and to get to know each other, as we respectfully listen to each other’s truths. We are also planning educational programs and other initiatives to repair the harm done to our community by racial inequality and injustice.
Members of CTTT are committed to addressing the Legacies and Aftermaths of Slavery through:
- Facing History through acknowledging, and sharing personal, family and community histories of race with openness and honesty
- Making Connections to others within and across racial lines in order to develop and deepen relationships
- Healing Wounds by exploring how we can heal together through dialogue, reunion, apology, and other methods
- Taking Action by actively seeking to heal the wounds of racial inequality and injustice and to support racial reconciliation between individuals, within families, and in communities
