DON LEMON IN CONVERSATION AT THE CHURCH WITH DR. GEORGETTE GRIER-KEY, JUNE 13TH

 

Sunday, June 13th, 10am-11am

The Social Justice Committee of Temple Adas Israel, in partnership with The Church, is proud to welcome Sag Harbor resident Don Lemon, host of CNN Don Lemon Tonight for a virtual book event in celebration of his new book, This Is the Fire: What I Say to My Friends About Racism.

As America’s only Black prime-time anchor, Lemon’s daily monologues on racism and on America’s systemic flaws speak for his millions of fans. Lemon was the leading voice on CNN guiding viewers through the death of George Floyd and a summer of nationwide protests and riots. Now, in an urgent, deeply personal, riveting plea, he shows us all how deep our problems lie, and what we can do to begin to fix them. 

Join us for a discussion moderated by local historian Dr. Georgette Grier-Key, the Executive Director of Sag Harbor’s Eastville Community Historical Society.​

Signed copies of Don Lemon's book can be purchased from Canio's Books, Sag Harbor. Please call or email, 631.725.4926 or caniosbooks@verizon.net.  Order today! Canio's is happy to ship to you if you'd like.  Books, without signature, can also be purchased online at bookshop.org/shop/caniosbooks.  Thank you for supporting a local independent bookstore!​

Special thanks to the Social Justice Committee of Temple Adas Israel for thinking of The Church for this event. We are delighted to once again collaborate with Temple Adas Israel.

The Church mission and progress

Mission

The mission of the Sag Harbor Church (The Church) is to

foster creativity on the East End to honor the living

history of Sag Harbor as a “maker” Village.

 

The Church will champion new and traditional technologies 

 through collaboration, education and outreach.

The Church is operated by Edge and Center, Inc, a not-for-profit public charity, EIN # 84-1866415.

Progress

Although we have almost completed renovation of the deconsecrated Methodist Church as a creative resource, we hope that fall of 2020 may be a safe date for opening to the general public, depending on the pandemic. Artists-in-residence will be invited as soon as possible, and will be chosen by recommenders rather than by open submission. 

See our Plans page for more detailed information.

See our Behind the Scenes page for architectural progress reports from our architect Lee Skolnick.

 

Check back for updates and sign up for our email list.
