Two men, divided by time, share in a long tradition of preaching the gospel during times of war. Gowan Pamphlet, the first enslaved Baptist preacher, and James Russell Brown, the first African-American Navy chaplain, both studied, preached, and lived in Williamsburg during tumultuous periods in American history. Join these men as they look forward and back in time to contemplate and understand the transcendent ideas of hope, equality, and courage.
