Wednesday Night Programs

The History of St. James’s From the Beginning.

Wednesdays, April 14 – May 5, 2021

No matter how much you know about St. James’s, you’re about to learn a whole lot more. Every Wednesday evening from April 14 through May 5, we’ll see the history of St. James’s through the lens of race in our series: “Uncovering Our History.”

Under the leadership of the Racial Justice & Reconciliation Ministry, a team of St. James’s parishioners has undertaken the research. In addition, well-known historians of antebellum Richmond and the Episcopal Church, Dr. Gregg Kimball and Dr. Ed Bond, respectively, will provide us with the larger historical landscape and context.

Register in advance just once for this entire series. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining all the meetings.  Click here to see the full schedule, and here to register.

The first session of the series: An Overview of Richmond 1830-1865, was led by Dr. Gregg Kimball on April 14, 2021. Dr. Kimball is the Director of Public Services and Outreach at the Library of Virginia and the author of American City, Southern Place: A Cultural History of Antebellum Richmond.
