Zion Baptist Church "I-Do"

The Zion Baptist Church was founded on November 15, 1865. Zion's members have played sterling roles in our city, state, and nation. They have been ex-slaves, laborers, politicians, preachers, teachers, writers, musicians, artists, lawyers, doctors, activists, and many other folk. In many cases they have been the first to act upon and reach for opportunities that traditionally had been denied our people. This resource documents and celebrates the marriages and anniversaries of the members of the church both past and present.
