For Friends of Color only. What do we have in common with each other and our Quaker ancestors? Learn about the lives of Friends of Color who joined RSOF from the 18th century on and about their experiences as members, and spend time sharing and documenting on paper and/or video our own personal experiences. (PT, HG1, HG2)
Each day we will begin and end the workshop in worship. We will examine the lives of Friends such as Abigail Franks, Cyrus Bustill, Sarah Mapps Douglass, Paul Cuffee, William Boen, Ham Sok Hon, Gordon Hirabayashi, Sondra Ball and others. There will be group activites to help us get to know each other. We will also spend time in small groups sharing our experiences as members of the Religious Society of Friends. There will be time to write down these experiences and/or record them digitally.
