Eight years after the death of Jesse Brooks, her love of missions and Jesus Christ is touching children across the world.
In 2002 the Jesse Brooks Foundation was established in her honor and memory by her family and friends. The foundation supports orphans at the Good Shepherd’s Happy Children’s Home located in Ghana, West Africa.
Tonight the Gadsden community has an opportunity to help the cause. A fashion show at the Gadsden Museum of Art will be held from 5-7 p.m.
This free event will feature clothing handmade by the wives of ministers in Ghana, according to an article in the Gadsden Times. Clothes, carves, jewelry, head wraps and much more will be available for purchase with prices ranging from $20-$80.
The show is part of the museum’s Black History Month celebrations.
