The Memphis Christian Pastors Network (MCPN) recently hosted a special jubilee worship service to honor the 50th anniversary of the 1968 sanitation workers’ strike in Memphis.
“It’s important for pastors to come together to leverage the great things the faith-based community is doing to make a bigger impact in Memphis,” said Rev. David Anderson, Senior Associate Pastor at Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church and MCPN member.
The special service kicked off with a mock demonstration of the 1968 Sanitation Strike, and leaders from the faith, business and government sectors spoke with attendees about how to improve race relations in Memphis.
