Theatre Reconiliation/Blessing – Chestertown

Theatre Reconciliation/Blessing
Friday, March 5 @ 7pm
Priceless!

Join us for a Reconciliation/Celebration Event that acknowledges past social inequities as they were experienced at the Prince Theatre.* During years of segregation, black citizens were made to use a separate entrance and seating to watch movies at the Prince Theatre. Additionally, our community has a history of segregating folks based on skin color and religious practices. Through reconciling injustices, celebrating a unified community, and expressing hope for the future, this event will provide impetus for us to join together to make our community a better place for all.
