On Saturday, February 21, 2015 at 12:30 PM, we will be celebrating the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and many other important African American figures at the Pearls of Wisdom Black History Luncheon. The event will take place at Taste”N” See, located at 455 E. Brambleton Avenue in Norfolk, Virginia (behind First Baptist Church, Bute Street).
We will also be honoring local senior saints ranging in age from 80-97 years of age who have made sacrifices and endured hardships to help to improve the quality of life of the African American community at large. These men and women of maturity and dignity will impart valuable pearls of wisdom and words of inspiration from the wealth of their experiences and observations during the Civil Rights Era. Our goal is to salute those individuals who have graciously paved the way for the success and achievement of those in the next generation. These are the men and women who have made it their business to smooth the way for those who would follow in their footsteps.
Please consider inviting a senior you know in your family, church or neighborhood to the celebration. We would be so thrilled to have them sit among guests of all ages and share their knowledge of African American history from their unique perspective. If you sponsor a senior, you will have the opportunity to be a blessing to one who has helped to shape the fabric of America, and you in turn, will receive a blessing as well, for “he that watereth shall be watered also himself” (Proverbs 11:25}.
There will be entertainment, door prizes, and a fashion show and contest for those who wear authentic African attire. We look forward to seeing you at this grand affair! Seating is limited, so we encourage you to promptly reserve your tickets. Please don’t miss this opportunity to connect with your heritage.
Tickets for the luncheon are $18.00.
