Acclaimed Poet Sonia Sanchez Lends Voice To Tonight's #BlackLivesMatter Rally To Action In Philly
'The 7 Last Words of 7 Black Lives' will be presented through short sermons, music, and the spoken word in a healing service presented by interfaith clergy leaders from POWER tonight (12/10) at 7pm at New Vision United Methodist Church.
'Seven Last Words' services are a Christian tradition where congregations use Good Friday to recall the seven last words of Jesus Christ before he died on Calvary. Wednesday's event is modeled after the Holy Week service and is designed to provide a space for a hurting community to come together for healing, understanding, and encouragement. It is also a call to action in taking the next steps toward fighting for justice and against institutionalized racism.
