The Ohio Council of Churches is part of the initiative "Breaking the Chains of Slavery and Racial Bias," including an effort to involve churches in a discussion of the book and documentary titled, African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross (video can be obtained through Amazon). OCC's participation in this effort is linked to its anti-racism priority and connection with the ACT NOW to End Racism effort of the National Council of Churches. Toward that end, a discussion on Racial Reconciliation will be held on February 10, 2019, 3:30-5:30 pm at The Ohio State University Saxbe Auditorium, 55 W 12 Avenue, Columbus, OH 43210. The facilitator for this discussion will be OSU Law Professor Emeritus Vincene Verdun-Cox, an African American activist and involved member of our community who has served on many committees and movements that impacted the presence and rights of historically oppressed groups.
