Station Ten - The 2000s and Women's Leadership in the Present

Tuesday, March 19, 2019  |  6 - 8 p.m.

Second Baptist Church

This gathering will act as the closing ceremony for this programming series and will do so highlighting the present moment and the invaluable contribution of women in the movement for Black liberation.

March 19, 2019


In recognition of 2019 Black History Month, the Center for the Church and the Black Experience at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, Northwestern University, and numerous African American churches and organizations worked collaboratively to create this community project titled, “Out of the African Diaspora to Evanston: The Mosaic of Human Community.”

All are welcome to attend any or all stations held throughout the month of February and March.


Using the Stations of the Cross to situate the history of Black Americans, participants will experience Black history from precolonial Africa to the present day. Through various productions and representations—historical texts, art, photographs, artifacts, teaching, preaching, Bible study, and Scriptures—participants will explore and discuss key historical moments and movements in Black history. Ultimately bringing attention to the ways that these histories relate to Black Evanston/ Northshore, this 2019 community project will shed new light on “living” history in the present-day, a pursuit relevant for youth and seasoned, alike.
