First Community Interfaith Institute performs libation at the University of Rochester


On Friday, December 5, First Community Interfaith Institute Inc. went on a field trip to the University of Rochester for the Black Student Union annual Kwanzaa celebration, whose theme was "Embracing Love, Fellowship and Family." Minister Evans, along with some of the adult members/supporters and children in the tutorial program, performed a libation honoring some of our heroes and sheroes who have joined the ancestors.Minister Evans gave a brief lecture as well. There were also some excellent UR student performers as well, such as Sister Ashley Anderson, who performed a solo dance number. Everyone enjoyed themselves and people in the audience were particularly impressed with the children, who drummed during the libation.
