The Community Life Committee at Hood Theological Seminary, under the direction of Dr. Mary Love, adjunct professor of Christian Education, has designed and installed a special display in the Aymer Center in observance of Black History Month.
The display highlights the national Black History Month theme, “Hallowed Grounds: Sites of African American Memory.” There will be a focus on sites in four areas: faith, education, justice and civil rights.
The celebration of Black History Month will culminate on Tuesday, Feb. 23, with an evening event beginning at 6 p.m. with a reception and Hallowed Grounds Gallery Crawl. At 7 p.m., there will be a special presentation interspersed with singing of spirituals and Gospel songs. This event is free and the public is welcome.
The Aymer Center is located on the seminary campus at 1810 Lutheran Synod Drive in Salisbury.
