Crispus Attucks High School Tour
1140 Dr. M.L.K. Jr St, Indianapolis, IN 46202
Sunday, November 7, 2 p.m.
Meet us at the school to learn more about the role of this institution in the life of our city. Even though Crispus Attucks was "planned to fail," it has overcome many challenges, such as the division of the neighborhood by interstate construction, to thrive in spite of the community's systemic racism.
We'll meet at 2 p.m. at door 13 on the southwest side of the school. The tour is $6 (cash only), and masks are required. The tour will last no more than two hours.
Second Presbyterian Church is a participant in the Matthew 25 Initiative of the PC(USA). One of the goals of this initiative is to support racial justice by dismantling structural racism. We can do this is by fearlessly applying our faith to advocate and break down the systems, practices, and thinking that underlie discrimination, bias, prejudice, and oppression of people of color. The Wayfinders group is addressing this goal through reading and discussing current books related to social and racial injustice. Our mission is to reflect on our own biases, grow in our knowledge, and determine ways to take action as individuals and as a congregation in a manner supported by the teachings of Jesus Christ.
All are welcome to join us in this important work! The fall book is Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates. For more information, contact Janet Pfadt.
