A site-seeing tour of Cushinberry Park will be led by Sonny Scroggins at 5:45pm. After urban renewal, most, if not all of the Black Landmarks in Topeka were destroyed. The Park was named for Grant by the Kansas Fever Committee in the 80's.

The Kansas Fever Committee is the historical arm of Bias Busters of Kansas.

Abraham Lincoln said, "The probability that we may fail in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just."

Revelation 14:13-14. "Then I heard your voice from heaven say, Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on. "Yes" says the spirit; they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them."

James 2, Faith and Deeds:

"What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, "Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed, “but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead."

The Public is invited to attend and participate by word. action or deed!

Please come by the Park and have a piece of cake to celebrate the life of Grant Cushinberry.
