Religious folks congregate at the Metro
Yesterday at about 5 pm, a large group of people were at the Metro, singing and clapping and passing out cards. I spoke to one of the people handing out the cards, he said they were from an apostolic evangelical church and were there for an event at the National Baptist Memorial Church at 16th and Columbia (the big round one). As for why 14th and Irving, he said they wanted to show their support for the event so they decided to go out witnessing and singing.
I thought at first that they were out protesting something, but that wasn't the case. Just more random interesting stuff in the hood.
