Dr. Justin Hunter to cap Black History Month celebration for Shelbyville's Second Baptist Church

Second Baptist Church has been celebrating February's Black History Month.

The National Theme for Black History Month 2023 is "Black Resistance." 

"Black Resistance" explores how Blacks have resisted historic and ongoing oppression in all forms.

Through each Sunday in February the congregation will test their history knowledge through the weekly Black History Month Trivia Challenge.

James Garrett Jr. appeared on The Morning Show to talk more about events at Second Baptist Church. He says trivia has been a fun learing tool for some time now.



On Sunday,  the celebration will culminate with guest speaker Dr. Justin Hunter, Pastor of One Vision in Christ Community Church. Dr. Hunter is an education specialist currently working as Director of Human Resources at Metropolitan School District of Pike Township, Indianapolis.

The service Sunday begins at 10 a.m. At the conclusion of the service will be a Black History Month celebration dinner in the Church's fellowship hall.

The community is welcome to join Second Baptist Church and guests for this Black History Month celebration.
