Traces of the Trade 2022 | Nacogdoches
September 24, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Episcopal Health Foundation, in partnership with congregations and community organizations in Nacogdoches, invites you to view the film Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North and engage in dialogue facilitated by DeWolf descendant Dain Perry and wife Constance Perry.
The screening is in partnership with the following congregations and organizations in Nacogdoches: 21/7 Association, Austin Heights Baptist Church, Westminister Presbyterian Church, Zion Hill 1st Baptist Church, and Eastside Assembly of God.
**Please note, the screening will be held at Zion Hill First Baptist Church, 122 NE Stallings Drive, Nacogdoches, TX.**
The documentary recounts one New England family’s involvement in the slave trade in the 18th and early 19th centuries against the backdrop of Northern business, communities and residents who condoned and benefited from slave trading. The film will be followed by facilitated discussion.
Racial discrimination and systemic racism have profound effects on the health and well-being not only of minority populations, but of our broader communities. EHF is uniquely positioned alongside the Diocese of Texas to partner with congregations to build bridges of health and wholeness into communities. Recognizing our Gospel call to seek and serve Christ in all persons, together we will listen, advise, and work to build healthy communities.
When: Saturday, September 24, 2022 @ 4 PM – 7 PM
Location: Zion Hill First Baptist Church
122 NE Stallings Drive

All Racial Reconciliation work at EHF is coordinated in partnership with the Episcopal Diocese of Texas and TEC’s Becoming Beloved Community.
