Come and See
The murder of George Floyd brought renewed attention to the legacy of racism in this country, both that which we face today, and that which we inherit from our history. We at Trinity Church in the City of Boston are choosing to explore our congregation’s complicity in racism and how we have benefitted, and continue to benefit, from the slave economy.
Located in the lower level of the Parish House, the “Come and See” exhibit uses words, images, and numbers to narrate the history of slavery and the slave economy in New England, highlighting connections to Trinity Church. Literally looking into this history is a wall of inspiring icons and artwork depicting the Black, Indigenous, and People of Color who are martyrs and heroes of our faith, from Hebrew Testament times, through the ministry of Jesus, and into our own day.
The “Come and See” exhibit will be open 11am-3pm on Thursdays and Fridays with no pre-registration required
Masks are required at all times while indoors.
