Last year African American Healers', Inc. had an amazing program and panel discussions with dynamic speakers Dr. Benjamin Baker, Dr. Andy Lampkin, Dr. Andrea Trusty King, Mr. Anthony Paschal and Dr. Maury Jackson. This year the Black History program and conversation continues as African American Healers', Inc. focuses on the African American faith institution, the Church.
During the 11:00 am divine worship service, Dr. Maury Jackson will be the guest speaker and will preach on the African American Church. Lunch will be provided after the morning service and then in the afternoon at 3pm, Dr. Ramona L. Hyman will present a presentation entitled "Montgomery 55: Lessons from A Boycott." It is about the people who walked 381 days so that African Americans would not be forced to sit in the back of a bus.
This program, African American Healers' in a Multi-Cultural nation, is the mantra that Dr. Hyman wants everyone to voice anytime someone opens his or her mouth in America. "My prayer is that all who partake in this conversation find themselves baptized by and in the spirit of the healing that holds the African American community-even through the storms and that God's voice, God's thoughts concerning the African American will dance forth in the sermon and presentation,"
