Coming to the Table

Coming to the Table was founded by descendants of both slaveholders and enslaved people in partnership with the Center for Justice and Peacebuilding, and is an associate organization of CJP.

Coming to the Table is inspired by the vision of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in his historic March on Washington speech that one day “the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.” It values the sharing of personal, family and community stories as a powerful vehicle for uncovering history, building relationships, healing and inspiring action.
