Say Their Names Memorial

Sunday, November 1, 2020

Ross Avenue

Every November 1, United Methodists across the globe publically remember those who have passed away as a part of All Saints Day. This year, with the overdue spotlight on the unjust treatment suffered by black people, it was fitting that we honor those lives lost over the years.

The Say Their Names Memorial remembers those who have died because of the systemic racism that is imbedded in our nation’s systems of government and policing. It is also reflection of our stance as a United Methodist Church on racial healing and justice, as we recognize racism as a sin and commit to challenging unjust structures of power. This memorial contains more than 215 images of men and women across the country who have been killed as a manifestation of systemic racism, which is just a representative sample of the thousands of black people who have suffered and/or died in this manner throughout United States history.
