Missing Goodbyes: African American Losses in a Time of Pandemic
Tuesday, August 16, 2022. 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM

We face many challenges involving the culture and politics around death care in the African American community. During the pandemic, the goodbyes were missed and postponed. The “Homegoing” services, open caskets, musical selections, funeral programs and repasts were often missed or limited or postponed. Now what? Join us for a conversation about the unique challenges faced by this community and good ways to cope with our losses.
