Reflections from our Inclusion Committee

The More You Know

In 2020, St. Peter’s Church in San Pedro organized an Inclusion Committee in an effort to highlight the enormous contributions of African American people who were instrumental in changing the course of American history. Vignettes spotlighting key African Americans in the sciences, arts, politics, suffragette movement, to include several committee members and parishioners’ personal experiences with racism, were published weekly in the St. Peter’s Weekly, intended to inspire open dialogue and build a stronger sense of community among the parishioners during a time of great unrest resulting from the senseless and brutal murder of George Floyd.
