Cleveland Temple celebrates Black History Month
Font Size

Cleveland, OH—Parents and families joined the students of the Learning Center of the Cleveland Temple Corps as they sang the black national anthem, "Lift Every Voice and Sing," at the opening of the corps' 2005 Black History Month program, under the direction of Karen Jones. Students celebrated in song and drama the life of Harriet Tubman, a former slave, who "conducted" more than 300 slaves to freedom along the Underground Railroad.

Gail Henderson, local radio and television personality, ministered to the students and families through poetry. Through her unique rhythm and rhyme, she presented a message of hope that cited the preaching, values, and lifestyle of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. She also gave her testimony of the grace she found in Jesus Christ.

The program ended with a round of "Who Am I?" as children posed as famous black leaders of the past and present.

Children sing the gospel hymn ‘Go Down, Moses’ in honor of Harriet Tubman at the 2005 Cleveland Temple Corps’ Black History program.
