On Juneteenth, we will be hosting A Poetry of Peace: The Gospel According to Langston Hughes. This performance, conceived and performed by Rev Jackie Hawkins with music by Robert Hartley and Kelly Potter-Schell, is a seamless movement of poetry and music that cajoles, lifts, and transforms the human spirit!
