The members of Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church put on a black history program Sunday afternoon.
The production is titled "The Strong Black Woman". Its features the story of Polly Heidelberg, a civil rights activist in Meridian.
Members of the church came together to honor her achievements in the civil rights movement.,
"I found out how she was really a strong black woman. It came a point in time where we were not allowed to back then go into City Hall. This particular time i read an article where she fainted right in front of City Hall, and the only place to take here inside was City Hall.
Whatever she had, she always shared it with me. She always let me know I was loved and she always told me to hold my head strong, and be somebody and don't let nobody pull me down," says Sharon Merriweather, author of the program.
The cast dressed up and celebrated Heidelberg's legacy on the last day of black history month.
