“Empathy is seeing with the eyes of another, listening with the ears of another, and feeling with the heart of another.”
– Arthur Adler

This program is an invitation to Old South members and friends to consider the perspectives and experiences of Black, Indigenous and People of Color in our beloved community.

What might it be like to enter into the physical space of Old South with the eyes or heart of another? Who and what would you see, feel and believe in this space? A visual image can challenge us to respond to the question: “Is this story true and inclusive? “ We will consider how sacred space can be inclusive or exclusive of whose story is being told. We will discuss resources that explore artwork in public and sacred spaces to consider critically how images and visual arts tell a story.

A goal of our conversation is to introduce what Christian reparations can mean in terms of restoring truth and stories that have been altered, stolen or erased. We will consider how white supremacy is built into our physical environment and reinforces our thinking about the world. We will discuss how we can restore truth.

Please email domalley@bridgew.edu to RSVP.

The three short articles below will serve as the basis of our conversation:
