Bishop Edward Smith of Zoe Christian Fellowship of Whittier will be the revivalist. His sermon will focus on the theme, “Preserving the African American Family in California.”


Daytime activities will be held at New Hope Baptist Church, 5200 S. Central Ave., in Los Angeles. A lunch symposium is scheduled for Jan. 23, at 11 a.m., with the Rev. Dr. Wendell Davis discussing “Conversation in Color: On Making a Black Man. ”

On Jan. 24, at 11 a.m., the symposium will feature Cedric Farmer, Tim Kornegay and Dwayne Dixon of the Ex-Offender Action Network reviewing the “70 Million Votes Campaign – Ballot initiatives for 2018.” At 4 p.m., Kathy Smith, board member of the California Minority Alliance, will present “Christianity and Cannabis.”
