This event will ground The Walk For Historical & Ecological Recovery (WHERE) in the Interfaith Pilgrimage of the Middle Passage, the epic journey that inspired us to walk together over the next seven months in the place known for millennia by the Wabanaki people as the Dawnland. Through art, story, performance, and dialogue, WHERE walks and programs will provide opportunities to uncover our shared histories of colonization, genocide, slavery, resistance, and survival, and to move toward healing together. 

On the 25th anniversary of the Interfaith Pilgrimage, founders Nobuntu Ingrid Askew and Sister Clare Carter will join Crossing the Waters Co-Director Dr. Sonji Johnson-Anderson and moderator June Thornton-Marsh for a screening of the documentary Rise Up and Call Their Names, which chronicles the extraordinary thirteen-month journey the founders led in 1998-1999 through the eastern United States, the Caribbean, Brazil, West Africa, and South Africa to reverse the direction of the Middle Passage–that is, the forced voyage of enslaved Africans across the Atlantic–both symbolically and geographically.
