A sign of honor

Community members gathered April 17 at Boykin Park for the unveiling of a new Monroe Boykin historic marker. The park was named in honor of Boykin, who was born into slavery but became a community leader after the Civil War. He went on to help form Mount Moriah Baptist Church in Camden and served as its first pastor.
