His move from Texas to Cleveland in 1961 brought him to the Greater Abyssinia Baptist Church in Cleveland’s Glenville Community where he continues to marry social activism and spirituality today. Discover his role in the Civil Rights Movement, feel the power of his preaching and music, and learn about his dedication to family and community engagement.
