Rev. Ben Chavis to preach in Durham February 16

This invitation is shared with you by the Do Justice Ministry.  CUCC members were connected to Rev. Chavis during the Wilmington 10 events while Rev. Chavis was on assignment from the UCC  (1971).  He also co-led the civil rights work in Warren County, NC, around toxic dumping on a small African American community (1982) - the beginnings of what is now the environmental justice movement. (He coined the term "environmental racism.")
