The history of Richmond both rich and complicated, especially in the area of race relations. A new book by the Rev. Benjamin Campbell explores the history of race relations in Richmond and Virginia, beginning with the settlement at Jamestown and continuing through the Civil War to current-day metropolitan Richmond. The book is written from a religious perspective and challenges its readers to consider how the legacy of the past can affect the reality of the present. All are invited to participate in a five-week book study on Richmond’s Unhealed History led by Suzanne Hall and the Rev. Carmen Germino. There will be light refreshments, lively discussion, and prayer for the city of Richmond. The book study will meet 5:30-7:00 p.m. on Tuesdays in the Michaux House on the following dates:
July 10 (Introduction, Chapters 1 & 2)
July 17 (Chapters 3 & 4)
July 24 (Chapters 5 & 6)
July 31 (Chapters 7 & 8 )
August 7 (Chapter 9, Epilogue)
