Local church celebrates Women's History Month
First Union Missionary Baptist Church put on a special play for Women's History Month Saturday.
"Ain't I a Woman" is a compilation of poetry, song, praise dance and drama. With only three weeks to prepare, the church's drama and dance team prepared to tell the story of Ruth, the great- grandmother to Jesus. The writer says she is pleased with the production and hopes teach the struggles women have faced throughout history.
"So it's just been a beautiful occasion we've only had three weeks to get ready for. So considering we'’ve only had three weeks everyone has a great job and I’m pleased," says Director Melba Clarke-Payne.
