ABC Action News covered the Robert Johnson Soil Collection Ceremony at The Portico. Sometimes our faith calls us to confront painful parts of our past and work to make right the wrongs of previous generations. One way we are engaging with this work is through our Justice Ministry. Recently, we partnered with Tampa City Councilman Luis Viera and the Equal Justice Initiative to gather soil at the site where Robert Johnson, a Black man, was lynched on January 28, 1934.
Watch the ceremony below.
