Associated Black Charities CEO Diane Bell-McKoy recently announced a Faith & Justice discussion commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the historic 1963 March on Washington. The Rev. Raphael Warnock, senior pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta will deliver the keynote address followed by a panel discussion about the commitment of the faith community to the ongoing fight for economic justice and civil rights facilitated by the Rev. Dr. Sheridan Todd Yeary with Bishop Dwayne C. Debnam, Imam Earl El-Amin and talk show host Marc Steiner.
The commemoration event will take place, 6-8 p.m., Sept. 12, at The Frederick Douglass-Isaac Myers Maritime Museum, 1417 Thames St., Baltimore.
“The civil rights movement was born and nurtured in churches and places of worship of various faiths across the country,” said Bell-McKoy. “As the world pauses to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the life-changing March on Washington, ABC wanted to facilitate a discussion about where the faith community stands in the fight for economic justice and civil rights.”
Ebenezer Baptist Church is where Dr. King gave his first sermon and where he served as co-pastor with his father until his assassination in 1968. Rev. Warnock is a well-known national speaker on faith and social justice and served as a pastor in Baltimore prior to his appointment in Atlanta.
