At the End of Slavery

If you don’t have anything going on tonight, head over to Ebenezers Coffeehouse on Capitol Hill (2nd St & F St NE) for a screening of the documentary film, At the End of Slavery. It will be shown at 8:30pm in the lower-level performance space.

Narrated by actor Danny Glover, At the End of Slavery: The Battle for Justice in our Time takes you inside the violent and ugly business of modern-day slavery — the buying and selling of human beings — from the brothels of the Philippines to the brick kilns of India.

Undercover footage and first-person testimony from former slaves and respected experts expose the enormity of the crime — but a remarkable strategy and the courage of today’s abolitionists offer hope for a final end to this brutal trade.

For your information, I love the song “God’s Gonna Cut you Down” (played in the film’s trailer) from the Man in Black, Mr. Johnny Cash.

I just wanted to post a link to my flickr set from last weekend’s Baptism By The Bay event.  Each summer, National Community Church holds a picnic and baptism event at the Sandy Point State Park on the shore of the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. It was a great time!
