Middlesex native to speak at black history program

George Kermit Gresham

Lebanon Worship Center Pastors Robert and Teresa Sutherlin, in conjunction with the Middlesex County NAACP, will sponsor a Black Heritage Program that will be held Sunday, March 11, at 3 p.m.

The theme is “The Dream Comes True, For Those Who Believe.”

The keynote speaker will be Middlesex native George Kermit Gresham, president of 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East, the largest local union in the world. Gresham was recently honored at the 2011 NAACP National Convention for his leadership in the advancement of civil and human rights.

Lebanon Baptist also will present “A Reenactment—A Day in the Life of a Slave” during Sunday’s program. “Please come out for an afternoon of poetry, music, praise dancing and refreshments,” said an event spokesperson.

Lebanon Worship Center is at 11821 Tidewater Trail, Saluda.
