Solidarity Sunday for Trayvon Martin
Rabbi Lerner and other members of the Network of Spiritual Progressives attended services at Allen Temple Baptist Church in Oakland, California on Sunday, July 21, a week after the Trayvon Martin verdict. Their intent was to show solidarity with the African American community and share in the deep grief over the unjust verdict.
In this three-part video, Rabbi Lerner decries the verdict as part of a blessing he gives to the church’s youth, while Senior Pastor J. Alfred Smith, Jr. speaks out about up-and-coming filmmaker Ryan Coogler (of Fruitvale Station fame). Pastor Emeritus J. Alfred Smith Sr., his father, outlines a seven-step program to combat racism, and the choir performs a beautiful, gut-wrenching rendition of “We Shall Overcome.”
