The Catawba County Democratic Party is organizing a peaceful vigil in Ridgeview on Tuesday, May 25th from 6:30-8:00pm. This will be an outdoor event on the Samuel William Davis, Sr. Multipurpose Field across the street from Brown Penn Recreation Center (at the intersection of 3rd St SW and 7th Ave SW in Hickory). The vigil will be open to the public and feature guest speakers to include Councilman David Williams, as well as representatives from local faith organizations, nonprofits, and branches of the NAACP.
Gavin Gabriel of Sherrills Ford and Toni Abernathy of Kenworth will be emcees for the evening. Seating in bleachers will be available, but limited, so attendees are encouraged to bring their own lawn chair. Water will be provided free of charge. Local organizations and black-owned business will be featured at tables around the field. Featured sponsors include Black Catawba County, Black Women Unified Now, Catawba Valley Pride, Love is a Verb, and P.O.U.R (Provide, Offer, Uplift, Rebuild).
