African American history is an extremely important part of American history. To acknowledge and celebrate African American History Month (February), please join us at Family Bible Fellowship in Newark, for a free interactive indoor walking tour of the groundbreaking curriculum, A Bridge Over Troubled Waters -The Journey of African Americans From Slave Ships to the White House.

Displays, in various rooms, will detail African American achievements and contributions in the fields of science, education, commerce, entertainment and sports. In addition, a showcase of inventions will educate and inform attendees regarding the impact and influence African American engineers and inventors have had on the American way of life.

Reflect on African American roots in Africa with a tribute to African kings and queens. Continue on, learning about slave ships to Emancipation, from the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to the historic Inauguration of the first African American President.

As a special treat, enjoy complimentary, down home soul food. The entire community is invited to attend this fascinating historical program.
