Coming to the Table featured in People MagazinePosted June 22nd, 2011 by Tom
I was thrilled to see the June 27, 2011 issue of People Magazine on the newstand at the airport as I was flying home last week. This issue features an article titled “Healing Slavery’s Wounds” beginning on page 66. It focuses on four stories of black and white people who are linked by the history of slavery and racism and have reconnected in the quest for healing. I encourage you to pick up a copy!
Unfortunately, the article is not available online so I cannot provide a link. I have scanned the article and you can read it here: People (27 June 2011)
Note: I hope that I am not breaking any copyright laws by providing this pdf. I purchased the magazine. I encourage you to do the same. I’ve given full credit to People for publishing this story and am grateful that they have highlighted this growing movement of people wanting to heal the wounds of racism that are rooted in the history of slavery in the United States.
