Ad Feedback

Rev. Howard Jones became the first black minister to work for Billy Graham when he was hired in 1958. He also became one of the first blacks to become a missionary in Africa. Blacks were discouraged from preaching the Gospel in Africa for a variety of reasons -- the main one being discrimination.

Watch an interview with Rev. Jones on his decision to go to Africa.
