In honor of Black History Month, Christ the Lord Church, 3760 Glenwood Road, Decatur, will host a “teen talk” for local high school students to learn about some great figures in African American history on Saturday, Feb. 22, 12:30 p.m.
The scheduled guest speaker for the event is Dr. Joseph Lowery.
Lowery was a minister in the United Methodist Church and leader in the Civil Rights Movement, who later became the third president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. Lowey participated in most of the major activities of the African- American civil rights movement of the 1960s.
Church members say the program will serve as a mentoring program for youths that will focus on issues dealing with gangs, drugs, teen pregnancy, jail life, bullying, and social media.
