America: A Four-Hundred-Year Experiment on the Black Family

Truro Anglican Church is excited to announce that Dr. Jacqueline Rivers will be delivering a guest lecture on Saturday, September 21st from 7:00pm-9:00pm to commemorate the launch of the Truro Institute. Dr. Rivers is a Harvard sociologist and recognized world authority on the black church and family in America. Her address, “America: A Four-Hundred-Year Experiment on the Black Family,” is in commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the slave trade in North America, which began in the Anglican Colony of Jamestown. Dr Margaret McCarthy of Catholic University of America and Mr. Brent Orrell of American Enterprise Institute will respond to Dr. Rivers address, modeling the kind of civil discourse and disagreement for which the Institute advocates. This lecture is open to the public and all are welcome to what is going to be a truly inspiring evening.

This is an ecumenical/inter-faith event.
