First Baptist Church to ring in new focus on African American History

2/22/19 | by Jack Jacobs

The sound of the Freedom Bell will take on new meaning Sunday, when it will be rung as part of a ceremony to kick off First Baptist Church of Williamsburg’s “Beyond February” campaign. The historic black church and its foundation will lead the campaign to extend its focus on African-American history as a more integral part of the nation’s history throughout 2019 and expand recognition of African-American achievement beyond the month of February.
