Grieving During a "Twindemic"

As Black America wrestles with two pandemics: racism and COVID-19 – The Revs explore the stigmas, practices and celebration.

The COVID-19 pandemic and the civil unrest have upended our daily lives and routines, creating uncertainty and anxiety, and grief. How we grieve and mourn and the practices and rituals that normally bring comfort aren't readily accessible during this incredibly isolating and challenging period. The Revs will talk about how the unique styles of black funerals "home goings" have functioned as both a form of pastoral care and celebration for its bereaved community.
