Old Zion Heritage Museum, dedicated to the preservation of history, art, and culture of the black community in Marietta and Cobb County, announces the presentation of a masterpiece story about the birth of Zion Baptist Church. The musical, ZION!, epitomizes the black experience in America through moving spirituals, dialogue, and dance. A diverse cast of performers has been assembled to tell this shared history. The story-line recounts the path the enslaved people took to become an independent congregation worshiping separately from Marietta First Baptist Church where they fought to hold membership.
Join us to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the historic establishment of Zion Baptist Church – the first African-American congregation in the City of Marietta!
