Zion Baptist Church and The Denver Public Library Present Three Celebrations, Saturday, May 18, 2013

Denver’ s 147-year-old Zion Baptist Church and the Denver Public Library’s Creating Your Community grant program present the “I Do” on-line photographic project about African Americans holy matrimonial vows. The project features photographs of weddings, anniversaries, vow renewals, and a wedding dress display. We will be available to scan your “I Do” photos.

Join us for a screening of Rocky Mountain PBS and History Colorado’s locally produced “Colorado Experience: Justina Ford, MD” written, produced and directed by donnie l. betts.  Born with two strikes against her, Dr. Justina Ford overcame barriers of race and gender to become the first African-American woman to practice medicine in Colorado and delivered over 7,000 babies. You will enjoy the twenty-seven minute film about a medical pioneer and one of Zion’s “First Ladies.”            

The final celebration will honor the Blair- Caldwell African American Research Library’s Tenth Anniversary.
