“This occasion marks an extraordinary achievement for our nation. For us as African Americans it is evidence of reaching a mountaintop. We realize however that there are even higher mountains for us to climb. We begin today with all people of America joining together for the journey.” said The Reverend Dr. Joan SalmonCampbell, member of Pilgrim Congregational Church.
Pilgrim’s Senior Pastor, The Rev. John Tamilio III, reflects, “Pilgrim is a diverse congregation that has a rich history of facilitating dialogue in our community around issues (secular and sacred) that affect us all. This event is simply a continuation of who we are and what we are called to do.”
