In honor of New Mount Olive Baptist Church of Fort Lauderdale’s 100th anniversary on Nov. 25, this exhibit will pay reverence to the church’s tradition of community service, and document its path to becoming one of the most influential and dynamic religious institutions in the Fort Lauderdale community Visitors will be greeted by video messages from the last three pastors of the church ― Rev. George E. Weaver, Dr. Mack King Carter and Dr. Marcus D. Davidson ― who have led the church for over 55 years. They will be accompanied by music which has been essential to the church. Archival photographs, including of three of the eight founding members of the church from 1918, and the histories of New Mount Olive’s influential leaders, theologians and valiant agents of change (past and present) who attracted and unified congregants, will also be featured. These individuals worked to revitalize low and moderate-income communities by providing strategic programs that promote economic development, create jobs and focus on strengthening families through public service, affordable housing, and entrepreneurial ventures. The exhibit runs through Sept. 28, 2018. To RSVP to the grand opening, visit https://bit.ly/2Lq55y2.
