Zion Baptist Church "I-Do"

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 community wants to celebrate the marriages and anniversaries of the members of the church both past and present.

 Mary and Edward Scott married in the mid 1920s in Mississippi. They married during a time when money was tight, civil rights were tighter, and dreams were tightest. Yet, this couple from the South found love amid cotton fields, high sheriffs, and prohibition. They moved to Denver, Colorado to find clearer way. Mary and Ed … Ed and Mary worked hard, drove new brown or black Pontiacs, went to the dog and horse tracks, played Bid Whist, ate deep-fried oysters, and made sure all who entered their doors maintained a high level of respect for their family.   Read more »
