ENGAGING WITH THE Equal Justice Initiative’s
Legacy Museum and Memorial
The Equal Justice Initiative created the Legacy Museum and Memorial to spark a national reflection on our country’s dark history of racial oppression and violence. For us Christians, this is a sacred opportunity as we reflect on our past to explore how we Christians can be part of healing and justice for the present and future.
If you are interested in joining us for the trip to the Legacy Museum and Memorial and/or the Ifill book study, or have any questions, please let me know via email.

Sunday July 29 & Sunday, August 26
As preparation for this trip, a group of us will be reading Sherrilyn Ifill’s On the Courthouse Lawn. This book historically engages the system of American lynching with questions on justice and reconciliation for the present. Ifill’s text was a central inspiration to EJI in creating the Legacy Museum and Memorial. We will be meeting on Sunday, July 29 and Sunday, August 26 to explore the parts 1 and 2 of the book. HERE is an Amazon link to Ifill’s book.
Saturday, September 29
On Saturday, Sept 29, we will travel to the Legacy Museum and Memorial in Montgomery to do just that: reflect on our national history of racial oppression through questions on how can Covenant nurture healing in our nation today. I expect this pilgrimage to be a powerful experience that will open our eyes to a harrowing past yet also provide the seeds for a hopeful future. Official details are still developing, but I plan to return to Birmingham in the mid-afternoon. HERE is a link for more information.
