In observance of Black History month, Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church, 1400 Fitch Street in Winston-Salem, will continue the tradition of hosting an African American Read-In (AARI) on Saturday, Feb 4, from noon until 3 p.m.

This read-in is an international event sponsored by the national council for the teachers of english.

Sheila Bailey, a retired librarian for over 30 years and a member of Morning Star, introduced this event to the church.

Bailey will offer over 150 titles written by African-American authors. There will be books for children as well as for adults.

Additionally, Morning Star will set aside a Black History Moment every Sunday during morning worship service.   The celebration also includes the annual “Soul-fest” and “Afro-Centric Sunday.” This year’s theme is “Through the Hardships, through the Triumphs, through the Fire … Our Legacy 2017.”

The Rev. Dr. Dennis Leach Sr. is the pastor.  The community is invited to attend.
