Making a pilgrimage to holy places is an ancient discipline filled with the past, present, and future. On this 153rd commemoration of Maryland’s constitutional end of chattel slavery, more than 80 pilgrims followed the trail of souls who lived and worked, worshipped and prayed, slave and free, in Baltimore City.
The day included a community pilgrimage through four historic Baltimore churches who are facing their histories of involvement with slavery. St. Paul’s Parish (Old St. Paul’s), Emmanuel Church, St. Luke’s Church and Memorial Church confronted their pasts and shared their stories.
