Observance of the 50th Anniversary of the Signing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964

Posted on: September 19th, 2014

On Sunday, September 28, 2014, the Daniel Alexander Payne Community Development Corporation and Metropolitan AME will partner in one worship service at 10:15 am to observe the 50th Anniversary of the signing of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964.  Heralded as one of the crowning legislative achievements of the civil rights movement, the legislation is worthy of wide-scale recognition and observance. We encourage you to invite family and friends to worship with us as we commemorate this significant event in our Nation’s history.  For additional information, please see a member of the Circles of Twelve.

A  “Call to Action, Call to Serve”: Networking Reception and Information Fair, organized by the Young Adults, will be held immediately following the combined service. The local chapters of the National Urban League, NAACP, and American Bar Association have been invited to attend service and share information at the reception about voter education and registration, advocacy, and community service opportunities.
