Benediction Cafe, fully accredited culinary training program to replace deteriorating church
The historic 104-year-old church at 711 E. Fayette St., the former home to People’s African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church, will be renovated and turned into a cafe and culinary school. The project organizers said they hope this is a good way to serve the community and the economy, while also saving the deteriorating building from destruction.
The Rev. Daren Jaime, the pastor of A.M.E. Zion Church, said that the congregation agreed to sell the building and move to a new location at 2306 S. Salina St., but that many people and groups did not want to see the building go.
On Saturday, July 26, 10 participants set out on The Stand’s Fifth annual Photo Walk.
Photowalking is the act of walking with a camera for the main purpose of taking pictures of things that the photographer may find interesting. It is also a social event organized for the purpose of having fun, improving one’s photography skills and exploring a neighborhood. Often the aim is to practice and improve one’s own photography skills rather than a specific focus on documentary photography.
See the results from this year’s walk below:
