“…We’re honored to be able to dedicate this memorial and these wonderful features that have now been added to declare to all who visit how precious and important every child of God is unto Thee… We are grateful for the Black pioneers and our dear friends of the Black community and in the Church and all that they do to bless the lives of others. Protect these wonderful representations [that] remind us of who we are and what blessings we enjoy because of those pioneers,”
