"400 Years: The Vestiges of Slavery in Cleveland, Ohio..."

In February, 2020 Channel 19 News Executive Producer, Ms. Tamu Thomas, Reporter, Chris Frye and Photographer Al came to Restoration Ministries of Greater Cleveland, Inc., to interview our pastor, The Reverend Christine A. Smith, about the history, importance and continuing relevance of the Black Church in the Black Community and beyond. Pastor Chris was one of several African American pastors across the country to be interviewed on this important topic.  In addition to the individual interviews, Channel 19 hosted a community town hall meeting at the historic Karamu House to delve more deeply into the continuing struggles of African American people directly related to the "long shadow of slavery," in Cleveland, Ohio and across America.  Click here to hear the interviews.
