Salem and Slater: A Shared History
A Conversation of Memory
Moderator: Dr. Michele Gillespie,
Dean of the College, Wake Forest University

Join us as we commemorate the 195th anniversary of St. Philips Moravian Church, the 125th anniversary of Winston-Salem State University.  Church and community members will reflect on the shared history among these two organizations.

Michelle McCullough and English Bradshaw will be honored and presented the prestigious Cedric S. Rodney Unity Award for service to the community. Former county commissioner, Walter Marshall will be honored posthumously.

Juneteenth is the country’s longest-running observance of the abolition of slavery in the United States.  The luncheon includes a tour of the St. Philips African Moravian Church, the oldest standing African American Church in North Carolina, where the ending of slavery was announced on Sunday, May 21, 1865.

COST: $25 / $20 for Students and Friends of Salem (plus sales tax)
