Honoring Black History

Black History Month

CENTRAL ILLINOIS (WCIA) — We are honoring black history month by highlighting people focused on making positive changing in our community.

We first take a look back at history where there’s a church.

From the arrival of the first enslaved people on native soil in 1619 to the present, churches have served as safe spaces and a source for organizing and a community hub.
