Pilgrimage, Day Nine

June 22, 2009

Today the Sojourners for Abolition and Reconciliation are making their way from Grifton to Kinston, then catching a ride to Jacksonville and walking from there to Swansboro.  You can follow their journey on the SofAR blog.

Over the weekend, the marchers traveled from Bethel to Greenville to Grifton, catching the media’s eye along the way.  Video, including an interview with co-founder Scott Bass, is here.  The Greenville Daily Reflector has two articles here and here (the latter being more informative).  SofAR also made the cover of today’s Raleigh News and Observer (article and photos here).

Tomorrow the Sojourners will reach the ocean.  They are planning an event at Emerald Isle Baptist Church at 6:30 PM.  Linda White, a member of Murder Victims’ Families for Reconciliation, will speak.
