A Conversation About Race and Faith in Asheville

27 Feb

This is an important opportunity for conversation about race and faith in Asheville.  It is being presented in conjunction with the YWCA Stand Against Racism.


In honor and recognition of Black History Month, the Baptist Ministers’ Union of Asheville and  Surrounding Counties and the Christians for a United Community, Inc. would like to invite you to a forum presented by the faith community on race and race relations. The Forum is entitled, “Reconciling the Most Segregated Time in America.” There will be a panel discussion from seasoned pastors within our community and an opportunity for the community to ask questions of our faith leaders. The panelists will be Reverend Mark Siler, Reverend Spencer Hardaway, Dr. John H. Grant and Father Jim Abbott. This forum will take place on Tuesday, February 28, 2012 at the Dr. Wesley Grant, Sr. Southside Community Center from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm. All are encouraged to come out and hear how the faith community is responding to race and race relations in our community.

Thank you,

L. C. Ray, President
Baptist Ministers Union of Asheville and Surrounding Counties
