Black History Month is here!

On Sunday February 20 at 4 pm. Minister Lawrance Lee Evans will give his annual Supporters Day address. The title of his lecture is "In Spite of Opposition: What Has and Will Be Done." The lecture will take place at 219 Hamilton Street, Rochester NY.

Suppporters Day is in honor of the later Charles Riley ( February 17, 1958-January 17, 1997), the namesake of First Community Interfaith Institute Inc.'s renowned tutorial program. Brother Charles was not only a student of Minister Lawrance Lee Evans Sr., but he was also a strong supporter of First Community Interfaith Institute Inc.

Charles taught young people at the Institute's tutorial program (formerly called Children's Fashion Hour). He was so dependable that when he joined the ancestors , the tutorial program was renamed the Charles Riley Tutorial Program.

In addition to being a student researcher for his mentor (Minister Lawrance Lee Evans Sr.), he implemented the recycling program so that funds could be generated for the Institute's educational and cultural programs.

Libation will be performed by the Ministry School of Doology, the adult students of Minister Evans. "Reciprocity" will be performed by the youth students of the Charles Riley Tutorial Program; they will recite brief tidbits of black heroes and sheroes, both alive and deceased.

Please come out on February 20 and bring your family!
