On September 19, 2021, First Community Interfaith Institute Inc. held a Zoom celebration to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Minister Akilah Ife Evans' birth. Ma Akilah worked diligently along with Minister Lawrance Lee Evans to expand the discipline of Doology to the Rochester community and beyond. She was multitalented; from baking cookies to sewing African attire to writing songs for the Institute singing group, the Cultural Renaissance Singers. She was a class act and was a positive spirit. RIP Minister Akilah.
