Black Church Summit Takes Stand Against Anti-Gay Discrimination

I know I am a little late on this and I remember reading about it but just now decided to post.
A landmark summit of Black clergy took place in Atlanta on January 20-21 to strategize about fighting against anti-gay discrimination in African American churches. More than 200 ministers and gay rights activists took part in this first Black Church Summit, which was called by the National Black Justice Coalition. The summit was held at the First Iconium Baptist Church in Atlanta, and one of the keynote speeches were given by Rev. Al Sharpton.
