Speakers for the event included Rev. Dr. Cynthia L. Hale, Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, Dr. Jamal Bryant and Dr. Freddie Haynes.

The event, which was open to the public, began at 7pm and had the theme of unity and stressed the importance of voting.

Rev. Dr. Cynthia Hale, senior Pastor at Ray of Hope Christian Church in Atlanta, made it very clear that there is a war on Black people and her support for Hillary Clinton.

“I feel like there is a war on Black people. Not just police, but by civilians. 50 years after the passage of the Civil Rights Act we are still fighting racism,” said Hale citing notable cases in recent years of police murders of Black men and woman and the murder of teenager Jordan Davis by a White armed civilian.

She stressed the importance and power of unity. Noting that everyone must take full participation to achieve unity to conquer racism.

She also made it very clear what candidate she was supporting and the power of the Black vote.

“There is only one choice for president and you know who she is.  The Black vote makes a difference.”

 

Hale will give the invocation Monday, Jan 25, 4:30 p.m. for the Democratic National Convention Monday July 25, 4:30 p.m.
