Coming to the Table, the organization founded in the spirit of Dr. King’s Dream to bring together descendants of the enslaved and enslavers to address the legacies of slavery that continue to impact all of us today, has launched our new website.
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
You’ll find stories relating to history, healing, connecting and action. There are resources, news items, and event announcements. Coming soon is the online community where people will be able connect with each other and share stories.
For anyone who lives in, or will be visiting, Mississippi later this month, take note of the “Creating New Legacies Inspired by the Dream” event that will take place at Tougaloo College in Jackson on January 30. This event is free and open to the public. Due to limited seating registration is required. You can register online here. I look forward to seeing you there.
I hope you find the new website useful. It will continue to evolve and grow along with the Coming to the Table community.
