Sisters in the Spirit
Women from around the state had a great time last Thursday listening to First Lady of New Vision Baptist Church, Kimberley Yancy telling us her personal experience with COVID-19, and that of her husband, Pastory Clinton L. Yancy, Sr. Yancy is the President of the Dickinson NAACP, mother, grandmother, teacher and author.
She delivered empowering words of wisdom and encouraged us all to get connected to our church members and loved ones to help manage COVID-19. Yancy encouraged us to Stay Home and not take the virus lightly. It is literally killing African Americans across the country more than anyone else.
We listened, we learned and we are empowered to talk with our Sister Friends and utilize the information we gained from this session to be influenceHers to everyone we know.
Several women will receive copies of her book: Confessions of a Preacher's Wife, available on Amazon.
Prior to the event, Kami Simmons of Fox West Texas interviewed Yancy and President of the local chapter, Sherley Spears about the event. Listen in!
The local chapter has established virtual meetings to help us keep our communities informed about COVID-19 through a series of informational virtual meetings. Watch here under Events or on our Facebook Page: San Angelo NAACP for more information about future events.
Please note that Mrs. Yancy and her husband are pastors of New Vision Baptist Church in Dickinson. The video stated the church is in Galveston. And the topic was Sisters in the Spirit, not In the Spirit.
