Voices of Woodlawn

On this All Souls Day, we honor our ancestors and lift up the truth of our past as we approach a critical juncture in the life of this nation. Four poets and a musician will share their perspective on the conflicted history of Woodlawn, a plantation built on land once owned by George Washington, where more than 90 enslaved people were forced to work. Dovetailing with the beloved rituals of our Sunday services, this timely presentation explores how Black history connects the past to the present.

Please join musician Cliff Bernier, and poets Sylvia Dianne “Ladi Di” Beverly, Hiram Larew, Diane Wilbon Parks, and Patrick Washington for this unique experience.
