Shelburne’s Trinity Episcopal Church, through its Outreach Committee, is looking to address and overcome racism in our communities.
Organizers say that although racism may seem like a distant problem to many Vermonters, it does exist in Vermont and it can be very divisive. The church will focus on three upcoming activities:
• A family movie night Aug. 17 starting at 6 p.m. with a showing of “Hidden Figures,” based on the true story of African-American women who played key roles in the U.S. space program. This get-together will include simple dinner and popcorn. Please RSVP on Eventbrite so the right amount of food is available.
• Weekly readings and videos available online. Email the church at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to be added to the e-news list to receive the links.
• A book discussion is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Sept. 20. Former South Burlington teacher, state representative and writer with an interest in black history, Bob Walsh, will lead the discussion involving the book “Between the World and Me” by Ta-Nehisi Coates. Refreshments provided. Copies of the book are for sale at a discount at Hopkins Bookstore inside Trinity Church, 5171 Shelburne Road.
