FORJ Families Event – Wednesday, November 13

FORJ (Families Organizing for Racial Justice) will hold an event for families on Wednesday, November 13 from 7:00-9:00 pm at Angier School.

Annawon Weeden will enact a dynamic monologue tracing the history of the Wampanoag from pre-1492 to the present day. His presentation challenges the audience to rethink their ideas about the Wampanoag and about America itself. A member of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe who grew up on the Narragansett Tribal Reservation in Rhode Island, Weeden has spent his life preserving the culture of his tribe. In 2016, he was awarded with a Congressional Honor as Culture Bearer for New England.

After Weeden’s presentation, the audience will break into small groups for a family-friendly discussion about reconciliation. Adults and children ages 10+ are invited, and admission is free. RSVP here.

Please be ON TIME! This is a dramatic presentation and it requires quiet and focus from the audience members.

This program is possible thanks to the generous sponsorship of Raising Luminaries.
