PC(USA) article highlights DPC’s Black History Month celebration
March 4, 2021
As part of its widely distributed news service, PC(USA) has shared with our denomination details of our efforts to honor African-Americans with ties to DPC – past and present – during Black History Month and beyond. We are thrilled to see the story of DPC member Nancy Nelson and her mother Gladys Nickleby Nelson, who was instrumental in inoculating people across the country with the polio vaccine, be given a nationwide platform. We invite you to read and share this article as we move forward with our Matthew 25 initiative with the focus of dismantling racism and its intersectionality with poverty.
