During Black History Month in February, people often take the opportunity to delve into the numerous contributions African Americans have made locally and throughout the nation.
But, as one prominent member of the black community said recently, African Americans are contributing across Fluvanna County every day.
On Sunday (Feb. 12) at New Fork Baptist Church near Cohasset, the vitality and warmth of one black community was felt through gospel music, inspired preaching, and a ceaseless flow of welcoming hugs and handshakes.“Every day is black history day, as far as I’m concerned,” Pastor Marcus Lee, Sr., told his congregation. “It’s not just 28 days. I’m living the reality of it.”
