St. Mark AME Zion Hosts Anti-Violence Peace Events
Enough is enough! Let’s stop the violence and break the silence and join St. Mark AME Zion Church as they fight against child abuse and stand up for peace in their annual Walk of Hope weekend. The events will begin with a peace walk on Saturday, April 27 from St. Mark A.M.E. Zion located at 7358 S. Cottage Grove from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The goal is to make communities safer and secure for everyone by bringing local elected officials, business leaders, clergymen, law enforcement and residents together help combat crime. Following the walk, the movie ministry of St. Mark AME Zion Church will present a private screening of the 2010 Black Harvest Film Festival award winning film, “On the Frontline: Taking Back Our Streets” at 3 p.m. The film screening will include a post-movie discussion featuring panelists: Derek Grace, director of “On the Frontline;” Camiella Williams, youth activist/co-star on “On the Frontline;” TJ Crawford of the National Cares Mentoring Movement/Black Youth Project; Ameena Matthews, CeaseFire Violence Interrupter/co-star of “The Interrupters” and Matt McGill, host of The Matt McGill Show on WVON AM 1690 Radio. The film screening will take place at the church. The Walk of Hope peace weekend will conclude on Sunday, April 28 with a keynote message by Minister Arthur D. Bishop, director of the Illinois Department of Juvenile Department during St. Mark AME Zion’s 11 a.m. worship service. For more information, call St. Mark A.M.E. Zion at (773) 994-4222.
