Southminster Presbyterian Church, 7801 Livingston Road, Oxon Hill, MD 20745
hosted by Burke Presbyterian Church and the Dismantling Racism Team of NCP

At The River is a feature length film documentary about a certain time and place in the deep south. In the Civil Rights era of the 50’s and 60’s, most Presbyterian ministers stood on the banks of the cultural river of segregation and white supremacy. They opted not to stir the waters in their congregations and communities by speaking out. However, a few young southern Presbyterian ministers did brave those currents through their sermons, community organizing and participating in marches and protests. They faced dangerous; hate filled consequences for these actions.

No Cost!  your unified giving at work!
