On the third Sunday in February, members and friends of the North Pacific Baptist Convention gather in our African attire to celebrate our African American heritage and support the educational endeavors of our youth during our Black Heritage Tea. This annual event is a fundraiser for the Trana Anderson Scholarship Fund which is awarded each year to deserving high school seniors accepted to a college or university and continuing college students.
In 1959, under the leadership of the late Mrs. Vivienne L. Penick, an idea was planned and developed into what is now our annual Black Heritage Tea. Its purpose was fellowship and fundraising for the Women’s Auxiliary to the North Pacific Baptist Convention.
The Scholarship fund was designed to encourage young people in their pursuit of higher education. The month of February was chosen for the Tea so that we may help our youth to know and understand more about our heritage and the achievement of Black people.
Our 63rd annual celebration will be held in all four areas on Sunday, February 20, at 3 p.m.
Contact our State Tea Chair, Inez Bruce (email@example.com) or one of the Area Tea Chairs for more details.
