The online exhibit, The Church Awakens, arose from the combination of an institutional reevaluation of the impact of racism, the motivation of a generous donor, the Rev. John Morris, and the Archives commitment to uncovering the archival legacy of the Church’s African American faithful.  The Archives challenges the Church to engage its history and reject the root cause of racism in the act of forgetting.
