Faith & Justice:
Pardon of the Groveland Four

The miscarriage of justice regarding the Groveland Four is difficult to fathom. On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we will discuss faith and racist attitudes. It has been 70 years since the miscarriage of justice perpetrated against four young black men in 1949 in Groveland Florida. The sheriff was a murderous white supremacist, the woman who testified against the four young men perjured herself, and the attitudes and actions of dozens of Floridians at that time was shameful and horrific. We will talk about this issue from our various faith perspectives and discuss the continuing hard work of bringing justice to those who have been mistreated and harmed. Our conversation about the Groveland Four and the continuing work for justice that is ever before us – that’s on this Friends Talking Faith.
