Incorporating Faith: Celebrating the Enduring Legacies of Black Placemaking
August 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
Join the Mitchell Center for African American Heritage for an engaging interdenominational dialogue between current leaders of historic Black institutions established in the late 18th and early 19th centuries by trailblazing Delawareans Richard Allen and Peter Spencer.
Moderated by Dr. Jeanne Nutter, Reverends Dr. Ronald Whitaker of Mother African Union Church and Dr. Mark Kelly Tyler of Mother Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church will discuss the connected legacies of the founders of these churches, reveal differences in the growth of their congregations, and celebrate the important roles these institutions continue to play in strengthening Black communities in the Mid-Atlantic and far beyond.
A light reception will follow the discussion.
