Virtual Celebration of Harriet Tubman on March 10
The Episcopal church is gathering virtually on March 10th for a new observance of Harriet Ross Tubman, honoring her 110 years after the day of her death. By act of 2022 General Convention, this year is the first time she will be honored on this day, prioritizing her as one of the great cloud of witnesses that inspire our faith. All are invited to wonder about this amazing woman together in a zoom gathering March 10th at 8pm Eastern time, and through videos suitable for children and adults, including a welcome message from Presiding Bishop Michael Curry. Register for this virtual celebration now.
Created by Will Bouvel and Jen Enriquez, the event will include some video reflections on her life and faith, including a Montessori-based story of her life suitable for children, and a video pilgrimage to Harriet’s birthplace on the Eastern shore of Maryland. Video offerings can be found here.
Jen and Will are also the team behind Tell Me the Truth about Racism, a story in six parts that frames racism through the lens of Christian faith. You can learn more about their program, watch their stories, and apply for their next April-May online training here at their website.
