Timothy Huebner


Calvary Episcopal Church/Rhodes College( )


This service remembers the enslaved people who were sold at the site of the antebellum slave mart owned and operated by Nathan Bedford Forrest.   Students from Rhodes College, working in collaboration with local scholars, wrote the text for a new historic marker, which will be dedicated in a brief ceremony at the conclusion of the service.  Confronting the truth about this part of our past will help to build trust in our community, in the hope of carrying out the ongoing work of racial reconciliation.
