The Racial Justice Education Team invites members and friends to a screening and discussion of Power to Heal: Medicare and the Civil Rights Revolution on Friday, June 28, at 7pm in the sanctuary. This documentary tells the untold story of how the twin struggles for racial justice and healthcare intersected creating Medicare and desegregating thousands of hospitals at the same time. Power to Heal illustrates how Movement leaders and grass-roots volunteers worked with the federal government to achieve a greater measure of justice and fairness for African Americans. We extend this invitation to the public, so please encourage friends and neighbors to attend this free event. Close captioning will be available.
