Watch Nights Mark 150 Years Since Emancipation

Watch Nights Mark 150 Years Since Emancipation | Brooklyn By Design | Scoop.it
WASHINGTON — As New Year's Day approached 150 years ago, all eyes were on President Abraham Lincoln in expectation of what he warned 100 days earlier would be coming – his final proclamation declaring all slaves in states rebelling against the...
Bonnie Sandy's insight:

African-American churches

Watchnight service has added significance and history in the African-American churches & communities  in the United States, since many slaves were said to have gathered in churches on New Year's Eve, in 1862, to await news and confirmation of the enactment of the Emancipation Proclamation by President Abraham Lincoln, on January 1, 1863

On the 150th anniversary of Watch Night, we should gather in churches, synagogues, mosques and in not so secret locations recognizing and commemorating those men and women of faith who gathered on December 31, 1862, to watch for the opportunity to secure the blessings of liberty for themselves and their posterity under the banner of the U. S. Constitution.  Indeed, on the 150th anniversary of the Day of Jubilee, we should celebrate when the war to preserve the Union officially became a war to end slavery, thus recognizing the efforts of Americans of African descent who freed themselves by helping to save the Union.
