Throughout February we are highlighting Black History Moments on our Conference Facebook page and here on our website. Led by some of our African-American clergy and laity across South Georgia, these moments are inspiring ways to learn about contributions shaping history in our conference.
As part of our Black History Month celebration, Bishop Lawson Bryan interviewed Rev. Farrell Duncombe, an AME pastor who lives in Montgomery, AL. Rev. Duncome, who was in Rosa Parks' Sunday school class as a child, tells of his memories of the night Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's house was bombed. Rev. Duncombe and his brother went to the house that same night, and he describes this night that proved to be a life changing moment for him.
