Members of the media are invited to cover and photograph a special convocation with United States Senator Raphael Warnock on Wednesday, April 3, at 1 p.m. in the Elridge W. Blake Sports and Fitness Center at the University of the Virgin Islands’ Orville E. Kean Campus on St. Thomas.  


Reverend Warnock serves as pastor at the Ebenezer Baptist Church, which is the historical parish of late Civil Rights Leader Reverand Dr. Maritn Luthor King, Jr. and is the first Black Democrat U.S. Senator elected in the State of Georgia.
