RCC and county museums sponsor Black History event

Kevan and D. Frank Waiters

Kevan and D. Frank Waiters

On Saturday, February 26, 1-4 p.m., Rappahannock Community College, the Richmond County Museum, and the Essex County Museum and Historical Society will jointly sponsor a presentation in honor of Black History Month. Rev. D. Frank Waiters and his brother Kevan will speak about Kevan Waiters’s book, “Brother to Brother: The Miracle of Family.”

The Waiters brothers are two of a family of eleven children who grew up on a farm in then-segregated South Carolina. “Brother to Brother” tells how the family’s love and support for each other never faltered through life’s trials. When D. Frank developed renal failure as a result of diabetes, Kevan was just one of the siblings who volunteered to donate a kidney. As it happened, not only was his kidney the best match, but he turned out to have three—a fact that the Waiterses consider a special provision of God’s love.

The program will take place at the Old Beale Building (formerly Beale Memorial Baptist Church), at the corner of Routes 17 (Church Lane) and 360 in Tappahannock, and the choir of Ebenezer Baptist Church will perform. Admission is free, and refreshments will be served. For more information, please call RCC’s Mary Gaskins at 804-333-6730, or David Jett at 804-333-3607 (Richmond County Museum) or 804-443-4690 (Essex County Museum).
