Happy New Year! 2013 was a great year for The Vine Events and we plan to continue with our theme “Moving Forward”. Our focus will remain on community development and we will address issues that hinder us from “moving forward”. The community forums we have scheduled for 2014 will provide an opportunity for our guest to speak and most importantly listen to others, so that we can establish some resolve for progression. Below is a schedule of our events up to April. Follow us on WordPress, Facebook, and Twitter to stay updated on dates, times, and locations.
January – Moving Forward: Don’t Believe The Hype – We will host a community dialogue about consumerism on Saturday, January 25th at 5pm at Westridge Place Clubhouse, 100 Donner Drive, Salisbury, NC. We will discuss media’s manipulation of consumers and importance of financial literacy.
February – Prince Among Slaves – We will host a screening of “Prince Among Slaves” for Black History Month. It is a true story about an African prince, Abdul Rahman, enslaved in the American South. This documentary introduces the fact that African American History does not begin with slavery, but expands beyond to the great continent of Africa.
March – African Presence in the Bible – We’ll continue our celebration of Black History Month with reading of Bishop J.W. Hood book “The Centennial of African Methodism”. Bishop Hood was one of the founders of Livingstone College and Hood Theological Seminary was named after him. (Both institutions are located in Salisbury, NC.) Our reading will focus on chapter two of his book. Click here to read.
April – Holy Lockdown: Does the Church Limit Black Progress – We will host a book reading of Jeremiah Camara’s book, “Holy Lockdown”. The book explores the impact of the Black church on the Black psyche. We’ll openly address how the Black church can use it’s influence in progressing community and economic development. This will be an online weekly discussion via video starting April 15th at 9pm EST. Visit here to purchase the book.
