Taylor County Civic Club celebrates Black History Month


It was a time to reflect upon the past and look toward the future.

A large crowd, in some cases several generations of the same family, was on hand at First Baptist Church in Campbellsville on Sunday for the Taylor County Civic Club’s 28th annual Black History Month celebration.

They stood and sang negro hymns and the church echoed with ‘amens’ as one speaker after another recalled the history of African-Americans, reminding the crowd that “God has brought us a long way, but we have a long way to go.”
