"Ma Akilah's Cultural Extravaganza" is coming and update of Uhuru Week

On Sunday, Sept. 23, four days after the birthday of the late Minster Akilah Evans and on what would have been the 45th anniversary of the Ministers Evans, First Community Interfaith Institute Inc. will bring back after a long absence the "Cultural Extravaganza." Now renamed "Ma Akilah's Cultural Extravaganza," the outdoor event, beginning at 4 pm outside 219 Hamilton Street,  will feature cultural events such as an African fashion show by Minister Lawrance Evans' adult students.

Here are a couple of videos from the successful August 21 Doology lecture by Minister Evans, and the video at the bottom of this post is from the August 24 Sylvester and Stacey Johnson Memorial Lecture.

Minister Lawrance Lee Evans Sr. is now an ancestor!

The Rochester (NY) community and the Elyria (OH) community are saddened by the passing of a distinguished scholar, researcher, community organizer, teacher, case manager, and clergyman, the renowned Minister Lawrance Lee Evans Sr, who transitioned on Sunday, September 9. from a brief illness.

This morning (September 14, 2018) will be his homegoing service at Aenon Baptist Church, 175 Genesee Street, Rochester NY 14611.

Please keep the Minister's immediate and extended family, and the First Community Interfaith Institute of Rochester and Elyria in your prayers.

= If you are in the Rochester area please pick up a copy of the September 12 edition of the Challenger Community News. On page 2 is a beautiful article that summed up the legacy of this great man. I did not get the permission of the  Challenger Community News to reprint their article, thus, I cannot include it in the blog at this time.
