Poor People's Campaign National Watch Night Service

I am not sure I understand this, but I believe this will happen on a national internet broadcast; I'm listing it as 5pm because I think that's what the Nashville time will be.

From the email:

The first Watch Night Service took place in 1862 when both enslaved and free Black people came together in churches and homes across the nation while they waited for the news of the passage of the Emancipation Proclamation—an act of bravery and hope that helped the United States move forward.

More than 150 years later, we must continue this tradition with all those who, despite the challenges that arise every day, believe and are working towards a more just and equitable society today.

Tune into this year’s Watch Night Service in Raleigh, NC, to hear directly from Rev. Dr. Barber, Rev. Dr. Theoharis and those impacted by our nation’s distorted moral narrative and experience powerful music that will inspire the heart. Watch the event here >>
