Salem Bible Church will celebrate Black History Month by honoring a distinguished list of history makers and dignitaries on Sunday, Feb. 24 at 3 p.m. at Salem East, located at 5460 Hillandale Drive in Lithonia.
Hosted by ministerial leaders, the Rev. Jasper Williams Jr. and Dr. Joseph L. Williams, the event guest speaker will be the Rev. Al Sharpton. Honorees will include Xernona Clayton, the Rev. Dr. C.T. Vivian, the Rev. Joseph E. Lowery and Evelyn Gibson Lowery. Guests at the event will be entertained by the Spelman College Glee Club, among others.
"The freedoms that I have as a 35-year-old African-American male exist because of the fight of my ancestors," says Co-Pastor Dr. Joseph L. Williams. "I am very blessed to be a part of a celebratory service that exalts true leaders who have allowed their life to affect generations present as well as generations to come!"
