A Litany of Atlanta and Other Stories, conceived by parishioner R. A. Foy, is a theatrical work based on narratives and themes captured by W. E. B. Du Bois’ A Litany of Atlanta and poet J. Chester Johnson’s litany Offense and Apology, written for The Episcopal Church’s 2008 apology for complicity in the transatlantic slave trade. Inspired by our American history of injustice and the struggle of Africans in America to achieve the American Dream—a dream systematically sabotaged by a white power structures and false narratives—R. A. Foy’s interactive piece resonates today. Litany also incorporates works by the Rev. Mark Bozzuti-Jones, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and Langston Hughes.
