PathStone is excited to announce …

the fourth annual PathStone Presents – Provok!ng Thought event. This year, our renowned thought leader is the Rev. Dr. Marvin A. McMickle retired President of Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School and former co-chair of the Rochester Monroe Anti-Poverty Initiative (RMAPI) steering committee.

Theme: Acknowledging the history of structural racism manifested by pervasive redlining and the racial disparities illuminated from the COVID-19 pandemic, how can Rochester and Monroe County more effectively embrace the principles of the “Beloved Community” as described by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The event will bring attention to internal issues within our own community, as well as the global spectrum by providing a safe space for open and respectful discussion. The community conversation, it will offer education and insight, give attendees a renewed sense of hope, and spur action for continued dialogue and positive change.

A panel of leaders from area financial institutions will also discuss the issues raised in the February 9th Democrat & Chronicle article written by Justin Murphy entitled, “How Rochester Blocked Black Home Ownership For Decades.”
