Kalonji Speaks at Lake Providence Missionary Baptist Church

A few pictures from Sunday — Kalonji was invited to speak at Lake Providence Missionary Baptist Church to their youth groups for Black History Month.

We all attended with him and had a nice time.  Many thanks to the church for the invitation!

I was particularly impressed that the church has a library and have been documenting their history.  One of their former congregation members, Mrs. Sadie W. Overton,  even wrote a book covering the church history from 1866-1996.  I definitely plan to follow-up with more research about the church given my interest in genealogy and African-American history in Nashville.
