Memorials to Slavery, Lynching and The Holocaust: Paths to Reconciliation by the Montgomery Four

Memorials create emotional spaces to help us acknowledge and understand the abuses of slavery, lynching and genocide. They provide opportunities to inform the present and motivation to ensure peace and justice for all. The program focuses on The National Memorial for Peace and Justice, opened a year ago in Montgomery, Alabama and the Holocaust Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe opened in 2015 in Berlin. The Montgomery Four: Linda Rousseau (ancestors owned slaves for 150 years in what is now Haiti)is a retired educator, an advocate for social justice at All Souls Unitarian Church, NYC, and a prison reform advocate in NY. Adine Usher (descendant of enslaved people) is an educational specialist, consultant, and advocate for students with disabilities and a member of the Community Unitarian Universal Congregation of White Plains, NY. Tosia McCormick (a descendant of the only Jewish family known to have escaped the Krakow ghetto intact) is a psychotherapist in private practice and co-founder of a non-profit organization promoting health literacy and safe sex for mature adults. Robert Dottin (descendant of enslaved people) is a professor of biology at Hunter College, CUNY, and a member of All Souls Unitarian Church, NYC.
