By From page A4 | February 03, 2014

VALLEJO — Parishioners at a Vallejo church have created a game that they will unveil at a black history celebration.

Kyles Temple AME Zion Church will host a “Black History experience” at 11 a.m. on Feb. 15 that features an educational game created by its members.

The game introduces, enlightens and educates participants on pioneering and ground-breaking events and accomplishments of African-Americans, according to an email from church member Daniel Halyard. Kyles Temple wants to use the game as a training tool for youths to learn history and improve reading and oratory skills.

Author Rufus Battle will also lecture at the black history event and sign copies of his book “One Man’s Battle.”

A fee that benefits the church includes a bowl of shrimp or chicken jambalaya, corn bread, salad, juice and a souvenir.

Seats are limited. For tickets, call Dan Halyard at 246-6517 or visit the temple at 902 Florida St.

    Since George Zimmerman was aquitted in the tragic death of Trayvon Martin, over 1000 black men have been murdered in America by other black men. Yet the media still harps and carps over Mr. Zimmerman's innocence.
