Calling All Youth!

What: Black History Poster-Making Protest Party!

Where: Second Baptist Church!

We would like for every youth to participate in the Black History Month presentation on Youth Sunday on February 3, 2019, at the 10:30 service. Youth had a powerful impact on the Civil Rights Movement in the past and they continue to be activists today. On Youth Sunday, we will highlight some of the young people who made historical contributions to African Americans moving forward. On Saturday, we will make posters to use in the presentation. Research what the protest was about, bring your ideas, and we will supply the materials for you to design your poster.
