The STH Community is invited to this discussion concerning police brutality against Black bodies as a continuous epidemic in our nation. We will discuss recent tragic incidents of police brutality, the connection between this brutality and white supremacist rhetoric from the White House, shine a light on the silence of religious institutions, and explore how all of these impact Black students at STH. Above all, we will hold sacred space to process, grieve, and organize together with the goal of standing in solidarity with Black bodies.
