An Open Spaces Sacred Places groundbreaking took place today at Talladega College to help students and the community to appreciate reflection and contemplation. The new Open Spaces Sacred Places project is provided by the Community Foundation of Northeast Alabama. The Community Foundation presented Talladega College with a grant in the amount of $10,000 in an effort to establish a sacred place adjacent to the campuses’ chapel.
With Talladega College being the states oldest private historically black college, the open space will be a place where people can sit, reflect, and renew in a natural setting. Fire Soul and Director of Public Relations Mary Stood says this sacred place will changes the entire campus of Talladega.
Stood says the Talladega community and students are excited for the sacred place to bring positive space within the community.
