PEVA PRAYER WALK

The Presbytery of Eastern Virginia Presents a Prayer Walk for Racial Justice and Healing Hampton, VA – The Presbytery of Eastern Virginia’s (PEVA) Racial Dialogue Team presents a Prayer Walk for Racial Justice and Healing, taking place at Fort Monroe in Hampton, VA on September 18, 2021, featuring contemplative prayers, opportunities for reflection, a mile walk at the historical Fort Monroe, and a speaker from the Contraband Historical Society.


Event Details:
We plan to start at the Bandstand for a welcome, prayer, and music, then proceed to the 1619 historical marker, pass through the East Gate to gather near the Chapel of the Centurion, go through the Main Gate, and stop by the historical markers outside of the gate before dispersing.


This is a free, family-friendly event.


Fort Monroe is a National Monument with a rich history. Fort Monroe was the site of both the first arrival of enslaved Africans to English North America, and a source of freedom during the Union occupation of the Civil War, when it became known as “Freedom’s Fort”. Today we acknowledge, celebrate, and honor the history of the place with a desire
for racial justice and healing in our communities.
