Don’t forget the church!



This month,  

The Story of Wynnewood’s Rich Black History 

Hopewell Church celebrated its 155th Anniversary in the month of May and to celebrate we encourage all to do good. In the spirit of celebration the story of Wynnewood’s Black History “The Life of Black Wynnewood” will continue to be displayed on website. The event is made possible by a grant from Oklahoma Humanities. 

This oral history presentation is in the form of a documentary titled, “The Hope of Generations: The Story of Wynnewood’s Rich Black History” and is viewable on Hopewell Church’s  website link: http://www.hwcinc.org/about/wynnewood-black-history/  

“In today’s society, it is important that we preserve as much of our history that we can and despite racial inequality, we must continue the legacy of hope our ancestors have given us”, says Pastor of Hopewell Church, Jokori L. Taylor.  

This program will continue for the remainder of 2021 to ensure its greatest opportunity of potential visibility.

Funding for this program is provided in part by a grant from Oklahoma Humanities (OH) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of OH or NEH.
