In 1998 the Interfaith Pilgrimage made its way into Charlotte. The group consisted of the young and the old from various ethnic and religious backgrounds. They were recreating the "Middle Passage" Slave trade routes from Europe, Africa, South America and the United States. Their goal was to locate sites that were part of the Slave trade and to pray for racial healing and atonement for the past institution of Slavery which occurred regardless of the weather in Charlotte NC, and the rest of the south.
In Memory of Pastor Jeff Lowrance! and Dr. Reginald Armistice Hawkins.
While in Charlotte the Pilgrims took our Charlotte Black/African-American Heritage Tour™. On our tour route they visited three existing Slave cemeteries and a former Slave church. Each year since then we have recreated this 3-hour tour and invited the public to attend. Over the years, with help from the media, we have inspired many of the caretakers in charge of these sites to clean up and recognize the contributions of those Slaves with honor and dignity.
