More On The 1898 Memorial

Continuing from this post:

More on 1898
The 1898 Monument and Memorial Park will be dedicated at 10 a.m. Saturday. The park is at 1018 N. Third St.

The 1898 Memorial Foundation has published “Moving Forward Together: A Community Remembers 1898” to commemorate the 110th anniversary on Monday. This textbook highlighting the history, the genesis of the 1898 Memorial Park and the efforts for community reconciliation, is on sale at local bookstores. Books also will be available at a booksigning during a reception at City Hall, 102 N. Third St., immediately after the park dedication. Copies will be sent to public libraries and high schools throughout the state.

Our choir performed at the service along with our sister church, First Baptist Missionary Church-Wilmington with whom we had a joint service earlier in the year to celebrate African-American heritage. Other community churches also participated in that event as well as the 1898 Memorial event.
