FEBRUARY 16, 2022: THE LEGACY OF PAULI MURRAY. In commemoration of Black History Month, we honored one of the most significant yet often overlooked leaders of the Episcopal Church. Pauli Murray was an attorney, a civil rights activist, a poet and author, a priest, and an LGBTQ pioneer. Her story and her gifts to us were explored by the Rev. Dr. Elizabeth Kaeton, Katherine Franke of Columbia Law School, and REPAIR leader Dennis Parker. View the program on the REPAIR YouTube channel by clicking here.

SEPTEMBER 22, 2021: LOOKING AT CRITICAL RACE THEORY. Once a little-known academic topic, CRT has become a political hot button, We examined what CRT really involves and how it has been used to inflame the culture wars and to stifle rather than stimulate debate.

APRIL 28, 2021: RESEARCHING OUR HISTORY. The Black presence in our communities has gone unrecognized for too long. We learned about how to study and understand our true racial histories--and how to use what we learn to make our communities better--from Joyce Sharrock Cole, Ossining Village Historian; Lynda Jones, vice president of Historic Hudson Valley; and Sarah Cox, chair of the Commemorating Enslaved Africans in Irvington Committee.
