Reese & Levonia Williams Memorial Library

Out of their devotion to the Word of God and the Black community, Mr. & Mrs. Reese Williams gave of themselves and their substance unstintingly to the work of the Gospel Ambassadors (now Carver Baptist Bible College, Institute & Theological Seminary) from 1941 until their deaths in 1968. The Annual Williams Bible Conference and the Reese and Levonia Williams Library have been established in their memory.
