Following a meaningful first event in Central Ohio, The West Ohio Conference will offer three additional presentations of "Crossing the Color Line: 400 Years of Race in America," a time of worship, learning, and discussion about the history of racism in the U.S.
The events will take place in January and February 2020 in the Cincinnati, Dayton, and Toledo areas, and will include a screening of the documentary, "Underground," which takes viewers on a journey through Black history in America. Directed by West Ohio pastor, Rev. Ryan Grace, and produced by Missionary Mariellyn Grace, "Underground" both acknowledges the racism that has separated Black and White people for hundreds of years, and celebrates the ways in which Black and White people have worked together to overcome racial division. The events, which are free and open to the public, will end with dinner and discussion.
