Last year, anti-racism activist Bryan Stevenson - with allies at the Southern Poverty Law Center - raised money and opened a new museum in Montgomery AL that chronicles the personal, histoirical and violent narrative of our relationship with race in the US.  This service is based on a slam poetry style sermon telling the story of how the black experience moved from slavery through Jim Crow reconstruction, through Civil Rights and right into a new era of systemic White Supremacy.  This service will trace our progess through a photograph, stories and music.
