Pilgrimage, Headed Home

The Sojourners for Abolition and Reconciliation have entered the final week of their march across North Carolina.  The first stop on the long walk home will be in Kinston, where St. Augustus AME Church (318 E. North Street) will be hosting Linda White for the screening of the documentary Meeting with a Killer.  White’s daughter was raped and murdered in 1986.  The film tells the story of White’s healing process, which included speaking with one of the men responsible.

A listing of media accounts of the march is here.  Members of SofAR are walking 300 miles across North Carolina to call for abolition of the death penalty and to raise awareness of the needs of family members on both sides of the debate.

    Their march really isn’t getting much media coverage. I don’t know if it will raise the level of awareness they had intended.
