Celebrating Black History Month: Eugene Sutton, first African-American bishop of Diocese of Maryland

Eugene Sutton, DC native, became the first black bishop of the Diocese of Maryland June 28, 2008 at the Washington National Cathedral where he was consecrated.  He visited our humble little church, Church of the Holy Apostles in Arbutus, last year.  He stated that he was now welcome in churches that a generation ago would not have let him through the front door.
