Family & Community Day: Press On, Peter

August 25, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Friday, August 25, 2023 | 6 – 8 pm

Mitchell Center for African American Heritage at the Delaware Historical Society
504 N. Market St. Wilmington, DE 19801

In collaboration with the Peter Spencer Heritage Hallway Committee at Mother African Union Church,
the Jane and Littleton Mitchell Center
for African American Heritage invites families to join us as we celebrate
the legacy of Peter Spencer through “Press On, Peter!,” a family-friendly dramatic presentation on
the ideals and actions of Spencer in his work to establish the first-ever incorporated Black church
in 1813.

This program is designed to supplement learning about Spencer and Mother Africa Church during
Mother Africa’s 2023 August Quarterly Festival (August 20 – 27). Come enjoy the performance and
explore August Quarterly through the images and objects in the “Forging Faith” exhibition!
