January 18, 2017 | The American Pilgrimage Project is a university partnership with StoryCorps, devoted to gathering the American people’s stories of religious faith in recording sessions conducted around the country. In Baltimore, Ralph Moore told his wife, Dana, of challenging racism in his church as a young man; in Charleston, West Virginia, ministers Ronald English and James Patterson recalled Reverend English’s work with Martin Luther King, Jr., during the civil rights movement. In Riggs, they shared their stories with the audience and reflected on them with one another. Paralleling the project's goals, the event took a fresh, informal, conversational approach to questions of religious faith and its role in our society.
