Bridging the racial divide explored during Women’s Wellness Retreat

From staff reports

A conversation between two women about how their deep-rooted friendship and courage set them on a mission to share in the work to bridge the differences that too often divide us, will be the keynote feature at the 2022 Women’s Wellness Retreat.

The presentation and discussion will be at 7 p.m., Friday March 18 at USC Beaufort’s Center for the Arts, the host site of the weekend long Women’s Wellness event which runs March 17 through March 19.

The two friends, Polly Shepard, a survivor of the 2015 mass shooting at Mother Emanuel Church in Charleston that left nine congregants dead, and Margaret Seidler, whose personal journey of emotional reckoning after discovering she is a descendant of slave traders is central to the evolution of their powerful relationship.

The women will share how the common bonds of forgiveness, honesty, and love have not just brought them together but are the foundation from which we can all build a bridge to reconciliation and healing.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information about this and other Women’s Wellness Retreat Events, visit https://bit.ly/3taYboJ.
