Honoring Congressman Louis Stokes (February 23, 1925– August 18, 2015) For Black History Month
We recognize Congressman Louis Stokes. He was an American attorney, civil rights pioneer and politician who served 15 terms in the United States House of Representatives. He represented the east side of Cleveland–and was the first African American Congressman elected in the state of Ohio. Congressman Stokes is the father of our own deacon Shelly Stokes-Hammond.
Another one of our members, Willie King, worked alongside Congressman Stokes during his civil rights days. Willie worked directly for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as a secretary. She is best know for being the person who transcribed and typed Dr. King’s famous letter from the Birmingham jail.
We want to keep his memory alive as well as recognize his relationship to two of our current members.
