On Saturday, February 7 from 6:00pm-8:00pm, Peacemakers will host HEROES: A Celebration of African-American Heroes. The event will feature an African-American History Museum, a scavenger hunt game for kids, great food, music, and guest speaker David Joyner, Gateway Centre Complex Marketing Director/Event Operations Manager, will share remarks. The community is invited to attend the free event being held at Peacemakers located at 1725 Davis Street in Rocky Mount.

At HEROES, Rocky Mount area residents will celebrate February as Black History Month, highlighting remarkable African-American leaders throughout history, and focusing on the positive impact of past and present heroes and visionaries. Activities are planned for people of all ages to celebrate their dreams, successes, identity and self-awareness.

“Anytime we can move a person in the direction of becoming who God intends for them to be, we should. And having a right view of self is a big part of that,” Peacemakers Executive Director Jesse Lewis said. “Peacemakers looks forward to hosting this community celebration that will hopefully plant seeds of inspiration in the hearts of all who attend.”

Peacemakers as an organization strives to tangibly demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ in such a way that it results ultimately in the complete transformation of the community and its people.
