October marks the start of Black History Month , an occasion to recognise and celebrate the invaluable contributions of black people to British economy, culture, and history.
After the Flood
As part of Black History Month, the Church provides a unique opportunity for its members, individually and collectively, to watch After the Flood: The Church, Slavery and Reconciliation. This 67-minute documentary shows how the 18th century Church became embroiled in chattel slavery. We discover how the Church justified its involvement in the trade and its lasting impact. In conclusion, it explores biblical principles for racial reconciliation in our churches today. Share the flyer with your parish members. Watch online now at vimeo.com/churchofengland/bhm2023.
