The Killeen Branch NAACP will host a Black History Month/Jubilee Program at 6:30 p.m. Friday at Greater Vision Community Church.

The guest speaker is Marilyn Johnson, retired IBM vice president of Market Development.

This year’s theme, “At the Crossroads of Freedom & Equality,” marks the 150-year anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation and the 50-year anniversary of the March on Washington. The event is free and open to the public.

During Black History month last year I walk into a church that had a display about notable blacks throughout history. President Barack Obama was part of the display. I found it so ironic that a man like the President that supports partial birth abortion and even to allow a baby that is born during that procedure to be taken to a back room to die would be featured in a house of God.


Will Killeen's mayor & State Rep. be at this event? They showed their faces at MLK Day events by NAACP. What have these 2 elected officials really done for Killeen's minorities other than walk in parades, give speeches at their events and make sure their faces are seen at NAACP functions?
