Lift Every Voice: Stories of Injustice and Learned Racism

Lift Every Voice: Stories of Injustice and Learned Racism

The holidays are here – a season of love. But how can we love our neighbors when the city is so divided?

The summer of 2020 ushered in a new era of truth and advocacy that confronts our country’s history of racial discrimination and injustice. Beginning with the “Tampa Technique,” a documentary film about Tampa’s Central Avenue business, a conversation began about the need for a new social justice movement in our time. The dialogue that began there continues with this new event.

Lift Every Voice is a virtual storytelling event you won’t miss!

Storytelling can be a powerful tool in building bridges to our lived experiences. These stories will teach us to:

  1. Be better advocates for racial justice
  2. Be better allies to all people of color
  3. Know better and do better

Courageous conversations validate the lived experiences of injustice and discrimination of people in our lives and in our communities.

These are our friends and neighbors in Tampa Bay. They are people we love, in the city we love. Together, we can make this a better place and life for all.

The event, presented by The Justice Ministry of Hyde Park United Methodist, is free and open to the public. Please pre-register.

The summer of 2020 ushered in a new era of truth and advocacy that confronts our country’s history of racial discrimination and injustice.

Our Justice Team started a local conversation with a public screening of the documentary the “Tampa Technique.

Now it’s time to have a deeper conversation that will go beyond the history of the film. We will take this opportunity to ask thought-provoking questions of our panelists and spur our community into public action. For more info contact Chalette@theportico.org.

Watch Party for “Tampa Technique”

Watch Party for “Tampa Technique”

Sponsored by Hyde Park’s Justice Ministry

We’ve all seen images of Americans responding to racial injustice across the country. Perhaps you have been one of those who have been marching for justice in the streets of our community. An important film, “The Tampa Technique,” examines how our Black neighbors responded to a similar time of injustice in the city.

How do recent Tampa events mirror the history examined in the film? Join us for a watch party that will start the conversation of how we can continue the march toward justice for all. Connect with Dr. Travis Bell, USF professor, for post-screening discussion. What steps can we take to balance the scales of racial equity in the city we love?

Join us on Facebook — 7 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 30
