Description
Title supplied by cataloger.
This photograph of Greater New Morning Star Baptist Church, located at 210 W. Florence Avenue, was taken from across the street and shows a partial view of the long, peach-color building. A banner that reads: "N.O. G.U.N.S." - which stands for Networks Organizing for Gang Unity and Neighborhood Safety - can be seen on the upper left corner of the church, and the main entrance is visible to the right; a black security gate surrounds the entire structure. The church was founded on October 21, 1958, and the present building was purchased on June 8, 1973. Verso on photograph states that this church was formally the LDS Matthews Ward. Photograph dated: July 2005.
