2017 “Commitment to Justice” Honoree

Reverend McKinley Washington, Jr.

WHAT: “Commitment to Justice” Reception

WHEN: Thursday, March 9th, 2017

WHERE: Francis Marion Hotel (387 King Street)

[Full bar, heavy hors d’oeuvres and a stellar program]

Reverend Washington grew up the son of a sharecropper in Sumter County to become the beloved pastor of the Edisto Presbyterian Church for 50 years, and helped lead the struggle for Civil Rights in his community and across the state.

He helped start the Sea Island Comprehensive health Care Corporation and the first Edisto branch of the NAACP in 1967. He also served for 16 years in the SC Legislature and 10 years in the SC Senate, when “hot seat” really meant something. There is so much more, but you must come to the “Commitment to Justice” reception to hear it!  Contact Tish Lynn to become a Sponsor or reserve your individual tickets at: (843) 745-7055/ tlynn@heirsproperty.org.
