Rev. Wilkins, pastor of the Auburn Avenue Presbyterian Church in Monroe, La., since 1989, will speak on “Real Patriotism.” Among other works, he has authored the American history study, AMERICA, The First 350 Years, which has reportedly become popular in curriculums for Christian schools and home schooling.
“Other speakers are scheduled to share the podium and report on the importance of voting in the coming primary and general elections and on current local political statistics,” said an e-mail from the event’s organizing committee.
Musical entertainment for the April 28 event, which the party said is aimed at educating and rallying conservative voters, will be provided by “The Jordan’s Gospel Bluegrass Band” beginning about 9:45 a.m.
Speeches are scheduled to start about 10:45 a.m., and the event is expected to last until about noon.
Chuck Mears is chief organizer of the rally.
