1959 - Bishop "Daddy" Grace
September 13, 1959 - Thousands of worshipers from the eastern U.S. take to the streets as the "Daddy Grace" parade makes its way through Charlotte's largest black neighborhood, Second Ward. Always held on the second Sunday in September, the parade honors Bishop C.M. "Sweet Daddy" Grace, the founder of the United House of Prayer for All People. Many believers find salvation and come forward at the church's mass baptisms.
