Man in the Water
Rev. Kären Rasmussen, Minister for Servng Together

Come join us for Rev. Kären’s last worship service as we explore the topic of when ordinary people do extraordinary things. Our February Serving Together project is a “foodraiser” to collect food for our Community Box. We hope you’ll bring one or two items such as trail mix bars, juice boxes, single serving applesauce or fruit cups, and single serving Mac and Cheese on this Sunday as we bid Kären farewell and thank her for her time and social justice work with us.

Contemporary Issues Forum (CC&C): 10:25am
Thurgood Marshall: Path to Brown v. Board of Education
Spencer Crew, Robinson Prof., George Mason Univ.

Brown v. Board of Education (US S Ct 1954) was built on incrementally groundbreaking but little heralded civil rights cases in the 1940’s and early 1950’s. The NAACP’s Thurgood Marshall, the principal advocate for petitioners in Brown, devoted years to creating its groundwork. Spencer Crew, Robinson Prof. of History at George Mason Univ., former head of the Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati, OH and former Director of the Smithsonian Museum of American History, is writing a book about Marshall. He will discuss Marshall’s contributions to the legal strategy that resulted in Brown.
