On Friday, February 28, at 6:00 p.m. First Church of the Brethren of Chicago and the Renew Now players will present a dramatic reading of “Project Unspeakable.” Witnesses shed important light on “unspeakables” of today—crimes of corruption between government and corporate allies that inflame many of the crises currently besetting our country and the earth.
The words and stories of courageous people who refused to be silenced by intimidation are timely encouragement to witnesses of ongoing crimes of unspeakable scope and devastation. Twelve readers from Chicago communities, representing a breadth of experience in neighborhood and international work for justice and peace, will breathe life into their witness.
The reading is free and open to the public. Free will donations will be accepted. The event will run from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 28 at First Church of the Brethren, 425 S Central Park Blvd., Chicago.
First Church of the Brethren is an intercultural congregation located in Chicago’s East Garfield Park neighborhood. Dr. King maintained an office at the church and preached there in January 1966, less than three weeks after he and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference had announced plans for the Chicago Freedom Movement.
