Information about the MLK Commemorative Service at Brookland Baptist Church
The Brookland Baptist Brotherhood and the South Carolina Chapter of the National Association of Blacks in Criminal Justice (NABCJ) are planning an exciting 2019 Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday program. It will take place on Saturday, January 19, 2019 at 9:00 a.m. in the Brookland Banquet and Conference Center; 1066 Sunset Blvd.; West Columbia, SC 29169.

Using as the theme “Where Do We Go from Here?”, we will assess where we are today in the struggle for civil and human rights and suggest a course for the future.

The keynote speaker for the occasion will be that bodacious Attorney, Civil Rights Leader and Author James L. Felder. Attorney Felder was Professor and Chair of the Department of Business & Economics at Allen University, Executive Vice President of Operation Push (Rev Jessie Jackson, President), and Executive Director of the SC Conference of NAACP. He will be available after our program to sign copies of his latest book on the AME Church.

We are also delighted that Reverend Doctor Harry Singleton, Professor of Religion at Benedict College will share Reflections on the Theme.

The Brookland Baptist Brotherhood will award its Martin Luther King, Jr. Drum Major Medallion to three persons who have advanced the work and dream of Dr. King. In addition to our keynote speaker Attorney Felder, Senator Kay Patterson and Mrs. Dorothy B. Cunningham will receive awards. They have devoted themselves to helping us live the dream.

Come and enjoy great singing by the Brookland Male Chorus, accompanied by the outstanding Ms. Saundera Crawford, in a tribute to The First Lady of Gospel and Soul: The Late Ms. Aretha Franklin. At the same time, enjoy a wonderful breakfast.

Tickets are $15 each and can be purchased after worship service each Sunday morning in the lobby of the Brookland Health and Wellness Center, starting December 9, or by contacting Smalls at 803-776-8072, or George Glymph at (803) 772-2884.
