BAKER COUNTY, GA (WALB) - A South Georgia church continued their tradition of celebrating Black History month during a special service.

The congregation of Thankful Baptist Church commemorated past and present African-American leaders. Children held pictures of those leaders as their accomplishments were read. This year's theme is "Black History:A part of American history."

"Black history is very important to remember because we played many roles that had not been recognized over many years. So by us remembering it we can see that he have come a long way and can go further," said Assistant Pastor, Derreck Calhoun.

The commander of the Marine Corp Logistics Base, Major General Willie Williams, was Sunday's guest speaker.
