Look Out For These Special Moments

Re-Storying Dignity - From Stigma to Compassion

This performance weaves together the stories of five amazing Black women who were faced with monumental life challenges. When they needed solace and healing from their spiritual homes, they were met with judgment and rejection.  They were ultimately able to overcome their challenges by turning to spaces and people where they found acceptance and belonging. Compassion helped them address, heal, and overcome the stigma as well as the circumstances they faced.

Join us for this performance and conversation about how we can create inclusive and healthy communities. Funded with a grant from Wake Forest School of Divinity.

Arthur of GPB, the longest-running kids animated series in history, will be with us!

Arthur is the longest-running animated children’s series in television history, and has been airing on PBS for 25 years. This year, the 25th (current) season is the last, although it will continue to air on repeat on PBS. The series is based on the popular book series by Marc Brown, and teaches children (4-8 years old) how to creatively solve problems, learn to get along, and appreciate each other’s differences.
