A local ministerial group will have a celebration of cultures Sunday in honor of Black History Month.

The event “Love Thy Neighbor” will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday at Liberty Baptist Church, 2502 N. Broadway Ave.

“It’s a coming together of our faith and our races,” Kenneth Butler, an event organizer, said. “It’s Black History Month, and we wanted to celebrate our differences.”

The event includes a keynote address from Green Acres Baptist Church pastor David Dykes as well as speeches from Mayor Barbara Bass, City Councilman Darryl Bowdre and pastor Gilberto Avila. The celebration also will include choir music.

The event is free and open to the public.
