- Lifting As We Climb: Holistic Resilience and the Black Women's Suffrage Movement
- Rev. Jacqueline Brett
- Music: Guest Vocalist, Tyra Scott
Though both white and black women actively sought the right to vote in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, black women only gained full and practical voting rights in 1965—45 years after their white sisters.
Today we'll explore lessons of perseverance and resilience from the black women's suffrage movement and their holistic approach toward aiming for the vote for all who were disenfranchised. How might we use these lessons in our justice work today? Rev. Jacqueline Brett and Worship Associate Chris Macon lead today's service. Tyra Scott is the guest music vocalist.
