Join The Hermitage for their annual commemoration of those enslaved at The Hermitage and throughout the country. The service will feature guest speaker Nicole A. Moore of the Center for Civil & Human Rights in Atlanta. Guests will conclude the service by participating in a procession to the slavery memorial “Follow the Drinking Gourd” located behind Hermitage Church. There, 150 flowers will be laid, marked with the names of all those known to have been enslaved at The Hermitage. Complimentary hot cocoa will be served following the service. Minister Green will lead a libation ritual, a spiritual ceremony to honor the ancestors commonly found in traditional African religions.
