Salem Walk Events 2023


“Salem Walk” is an in-person opportunity to learn about three people enslaved by Moravians in Salem between 1771 and 1860. Stories about Sambo/Abraham, Cathy, and Phoebe will be shared by walking to places where they lived, worked, and are buried. After gathering at Home Moravian Church (529 S. Church St.), participants will split into groups, each group focusing on the life of one individual. Discussion and worship will follow.  The experience will take approximately two hours. Read more about the walks here.

Salem Walk is sponsored by the Moravian Team for Racial, Cultural, and Ethnic Reconciliation.
