NAACP Annual Community Unity Breakfast @ Northampton High School
Jan 21 @ 8:30 am – 9:30 am

The celebration of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s Birthday is attributed not to one man or to one race, but to principles that are universal. To remember Dr. King is to affirm the nonviolent pursuit of freedom, justice, and equal opportunity for all. In that spirit, the citizens of Northampton County (Virginia) will again join to celebrate Dr. King’s ideals and to recognize the progress our community has made toward those ideals.

This year’s 29th Annual Community Unity Breakfast will be held on January 21, 2019 at 8:30 a.m. in the cafeteria of Northampton High School. Tickets are $6.00 for adults and no charge for students. The featured speaker for the breakfast will be the Rev. Felton T. Sessoms, pastor of the First Baptist Church, Cape Charles, Virginia.

Pastor Sessoms served on the Town Council of Nassawadox for four consecutive terms and subsequently he was elected as the first African American to serve as Mayor for the Town of Nassawadox. Pastor Sessoms served as President of the Eastern Shore Community College Board. Pastor Sessoms was a member of the Northampton Fire and Rescue Inc, serving as a Shock Trauma Technician and a Firefighter II. Pastor Sessoms continued his community service by serving on the Northampton County Board of Supervisors. As a Supervisor Pastor Sessoms served on several committees that contributed directly to the enhancement of his community. Pastor Sessoms is a mentor and presenter of the Northampton Youth Cultural Enrichment Opportunity.

Pastor Sessoms conducts workshops, seminars locally and throughout the eastern seaboard training church leaders to boldly face the challenges of an ever-changing world and community through Christ. Pastor Sessoms continually displays an endless enthusiasm for the growth and success of youth throughout his community.

As always the focus will be on the youth of the community. The Eastern Shore Community Services Network, Inc., and Optima Health & Family Care, will coordinate a health booth on information relevant to health education and prevention.

Other vendors are welcome. In addition, voter registration will also be available. Attendees are asked to bring non-perishable foods for the needy. A special commemorative souvenir booklet will be sold to help fund this event.
