The San Antonio International Association of Ministers’ Wives and Ministers’ Widows, Inc. (SAIAMWMW) and Proclaim Posses & Prevail, Inc. are partnering with WINGS (Women Involved in Nurturing, Giving and Sharing, Inc.), a non-profit established in 1999, who provides comprehensive breast health care services to women in Central and South Texas to sponsor “Faith over Fear” Fashion Show Extravaganza. They are joining forces to raise the bar for greater Quality of Life (QoL) outcomes for the underserved, uninsured and all who suffer socially, emotionally, and spiritually from the impact of breast cancer. The intent is to help set the state for building a stronger network of compassionate individuals, families, and communities in closing the gap from diagnosis to treatment.

We all likely know someone who has battled or survived breast cancer, and we are aware of the physical and financial impact cancer can have on individuals and their families. Therefore, supporters have an opportunity to be a part of this great event on Saturday, October 29th at 4:00PM at the Ella Austin Community Center, 1023 N. Pine St. All donation amounts are welcomed and are appreciated. To understand how a donation can make an even greater impact, supporters may consider sponsoring a patient. Various donations amounts can help relieve tremendous burdens. For example, a $50 donation pays for one lab; $100 pays for one oncology appointment; $250 pays for one scan; $500 pays for one MRI; $1000 pays for three courses of chemotherapy; $1,500 pays for one radical mastectomy; or $6,000 pays for one woman’s radiation treatment. 

Everyone can help raise the bar, impact quality of life, and close the gap from diagnosis to treatment. For more information or to purchase a ticket call Michelle Reid at (210) 383-1723 or Sandra Jolla at (469)682-8199. Donations may be mailed to P.O. Box 40217, San Antonio, TX 78229.

(SILVER SPRING, MD) March 4, 2022 – Celebrating Black History Month, TV One will air The Soul of the Nation Gospel Concert, featuring remarks by First Lady Jill Biden and performances by top Gospel artists such as JJ Hairston and Tamela Mann. The prerecorded event will re-air on Sunday, March 6 at 5 pm EST/4C on TV One.

The celebration will be hosted by Grammy-nominated Juan Winans and will feature musical performances by Madeline Howze, Tamela Mann, JJ Hairston and The Morehouse College Glee Club. Closing the event is Bishop William Murphy, III, the founder and lead pastor of The Dream Center Church of Atlanta, one of the nation’s most influential ministries leading the way in worship and community outreach. The program celebrates the history and impact of Gospel music and is sure to bring warmth and solace to both American and global viewers alike.

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), the federal cultural agency that funds research, public programs, and preservation work in fields such as history, literature, and religion, will also feature NEH-supported projects and humanities experts in this year’s program. The event will include commentary from Jesse P. Karlsberg, PhD Senior Digital Scholarship Strategist, Emory Center for Digital Scholarship and Southern Spiritual Music expert, Rev. Dr. James Abbington, representing the Sounding Spirit initiative, based at Emory University, digitizing historic American sacred songbooks. 

This year’s event marks the first time the program is being aired in partnership with TV One. “We are honored the White House and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden selected TV One to be part of this monumental Black History Month celebration,” said Michelle Rice, president of TV One Networks. Through the decades, U.S. presidents of both the Democratic and Republican parties have held official celebrations for Black History Month, where Black leaders, celebrities, and allies concerned with and for the community gather for music, dialogue and fellowship.
