From the Director by Rhashell D. Hunter
Matthew 25: Ending Racism & White Supremacy
"…when was it that we saw you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not take care of you? …Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me."
-- Matthew 25:44b-45
