The Abyssinian Baptist Church in the City of New York, the oldest black Baptist church in the nation, is well-known for its leadership, social activism initiatives, and community reform programs to educate and empower its members and the Harlem community at large. 

"When I first learned I had prostate cancer, I thought my career was over.  I thought it was a wrap for me," said Wilson, but his wife quickly proved to be his greatest supporter.  "My wife stood tall and told me we were going to get through it.  You just have to have a positive heart and go on.  That's what we did and now I want others to know about the resources that are available to them." 

At each event, Wilson will share his personal experience with prostate cancer and will be joined by Stanley K. Frencher Jr., MD, MPH, who through
