Thursday, December 6, 7 pm: Film Screening, The Rape of Recy Taylor

Join the New York Chapter of the Union of Black Episcopalians and the Task Force on Domestic Violence of the Episcopal Diocese of New York in the viewing of this documentary film. Recy Taylor, a 24-year-old black mother and sharecropper, was gang-raped by 6 white boys in 1944 Alabama. In the Jim Crow South, women feared for their lives if they spoke up, but Recy Taylor bravely identified her rapists. The NAACP sent its chief rape investigator, Rosa Parks, to help. Exposing a legacy of physical abuse of black women, the film reveals Rosa Parks’ intimate role in Recy Taylor’s story. It celebrates that from sexual aggression on southern streets in the 40s to today’s college campuses and corporations to the threatened right to choose, it is control of women’s bodies that powered the movement then as now. The Rape of Recy Taylor won the Special Prize for Human Rights Award (2017) at the Venice Film Festival and was nominated for Best Documentary at the 2018 N AACP Image Awards.

Thursday, November 29, 6:30 pm: Austin Channing Brown Book Talk at St. Mary’s

In a time when nearly all institutions claim to value “diversity” in their mission statements, Austin Channing Brown offers a powerful account of how and why our actions so often fall short of our words. She writes in riveting detail about her journey to self-worth and the pitfalls that kill our attempts at racial justice. Join Austin Channing Brown as she discusses her book and invites us to confront apathy, recognize God’s ongoing work in the world, and discover how blackness–if we let it–can save us all. Followed by a book-signing and reception. FREE. To RSVP: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/black-dignity-in-a-world-made-for-whiteness-with-austin-channing-brown-tickets-50787483731

Thursday, December 6, 7 pm: Film Screening, The Rape of Recy Taylor

Join the New York Chapter of the Union of Black Episcopalians and the Task Force on Domestic Violence of the Episcopal Diocese of New York in the viewing of this documentary film. Recy Taylor, a 24-year-old black mother and sharecropper, was gang-raped by 6 white boys in 1944 Alabama. In the Jim Crow South, women feared for their lives if they spoke up, but Recy Taylor bravely identified her rapists. The NAACP sent its chief rape investigator, Rosa Parks, to help. Exposing a legacy of physical abuse of black women, the film reveals Rosa Parks’ intimate role in Recy Taylor’s story. It celebrates that from sexual aggression on southern streets in the 40s to today’s college campuses and corporations to the threatened right to choose, it is control of women’s bodies that powered the movement then as now. The Rape of Recy Taylor won the Special Prize for Human Rights Award (2017) at the Venice Film Festival and was nominated for Best Documentary at the 2018 N AACP Image Awards.

The Mass will include music and readings from the 1968 funeral Mass at Gethsemani.  Reception will follow. Corpus Christi Church, 529 West 121 Street, NY 10027 (Manhattan). (212) 666-9350.
