Programs and Events

The year 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the martyrdom of Jonathan Daniels, who was assassinated on August 20, 1965 at the height of the Civil Rights movement. Jonathan grew up in Keene, New Hampshire where he worshiped at St. James Episcopal Church. To honor him and the beliefs he stood and died for, the Jonathan Daniels Commemoration Committee is spearheading the planning of activities throughout the year locally, nationally and internationally to commemorate his life and death.
