Emory & Henry Invites the Community to “A Remembrance” to Begin a Process of Reflection and Discernment on Our Shared History

by Billy Chandler

Emory & Henry College’s Appalachian Center for Civic Life and the Watershed Project presents an insightful event, “A Remembrance,” scheduled for Tuesday, October 17, at 7:30 p.m. at the McGlothlin Center for the Arts.

The work of dozens of students, faculty, staff, and local citizens, A Remembrance is an act of recovery, offering the first efforts to memorialize by name persons who built Emory & Henry College. A Remembrance calls us into honest reflection on our shared history.

The highlight of the evening will be a screening of “A Remembrance,” a groundbreaking video memorial that was created by the diligent work of students, faculty, staff and community members during the 2023 spring semester. Students painstakingly combed through the College’s original account books, deciphering 19th-century handwriting. “A Remembrance” is an act of recovery, offering the first efforts to memorialize by name persons who built Emory & Henry College. This remarkable effort marks the first-ever comprehensive of its kind undertaken at Emory & Henry College, reflecting the institution’s commitment to honest reflection on its shared history.

Dr. John W. Wells, President of Emory & Henry College, extends an invitation to the College community and the public to join in this moment of reflection and discernment. Dr. Wells remarked, “This production offers our first efforts to memorialize individuals who built this College and calls every person in this family into honest reflection on our shared history. Memorializing these individuals requires much more than a monument or a single moment of tribute; it demands that we translate these important lives and their impact into the work we do today.”

“As we come together at this moment,” Dr. Wells continued, “I am hoping that all those who value this College will be enriched by our appreciation and understanding of the questions raised by this presentation. I believe that we will connect ourselves more profoundly to one another, to the invaluable people of our past, and to the dedication we have to a future of peace, love, and equality.”

This event promises a deeper understanding of the College’s history and its connection to the broader societal context of the time. Admission is free, and all members of the community are encouraged to attend. For those who are unable to make the event in person, a live stream will be available at 7:30 p.m. here.

 

“As we come together at this moment, I am hoping that all those who value this College will be enriched by our appreciation and understanding of the questions raised by this presentation. I believe that we will connect ourselves more profoundly to one another, to the invaluable people of our past, and to the dedication we have to a future of peace, love, and equality.”
