A Five-Week Virtual Retreat

Created by the Rev. Masud Ibn Syedullah, TSSF,

assisted by the Rev. Chuck Kramer, Rector of St. James, Hyde Park and member of Reparations Committee.

Watch Session 3 of the seminar here:

Since the murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Abery, protests have sprung up across the country demanding real change. Is this the time for that change? Is this the moment that will lead to a lasting difference? It CAN be.
Let’s not let it slip by.

Embedded in the institution of slavery are principles that are the foundation of successive oppressive institutions in American culture today. Join us in this five-part webinar series to explore, understand, and strategize ways of transforming those corrupt principles intended to benefit a few, into life-affirming policies for the good of all.

Knee on My Neck: Slavery’s Ghost uses lectures, videos, and other supportive resource materials to help prepare participants to generate plans and strategies for parishes, the diocese, and the wider church embody and bear witness to policies and actions that affirm, support, and celebrate all.
