On Sunday, Jan. 15 at 10 a.m., we will celebrate the legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. As we remember him, we will honor the life and legacy of artist Winfred Rembert. Born in the Jim Crow South, Rembert endured imprisonment in multiple forms. Released in 1974, Winfred put his story into art. First Parish member John Thompson, Rembert’s friend, will share a reflection and show some of Rembert’s work.
In addition, on Jan. 18 at 7 p.m. at Weston Town Hall, there also will be an appreciation of Rembert. Please come to appreciate the life and story of Rembert as told in his 2021 Pulitzer Prize winning memoir, Chasing Me to My Grave. Co-author Erin Kelly and daughter Lillian Rembert will discuss the man and his art. For more information and to register through the Weston Public Library, click here.
