BLACK HISTORY LAY MUSUEM

2/9/2020

Exhibit Theme: African Americans and The Vote (https://asalh.org/black-history-themes/).

Objective: Gather information on the history of African Americans voting rights. Information will include key people involved in the fight for the right to vote, events, and/or speeches.

As in years past, on the first Sunday in February, we will show short videos on our theme during the Sunday School hour.  This presentation is a time for us to share what this month’s theme is all about.  We invite the whole church!

Each Sunday we will add a new piece of information to the exhibit.  See listing below:
