COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — President Joe Biden praised the existence of Black churches while speaking at one in South Carolina. Biden spoke Sunday at St. John Baptist Church in Columbia on the final day of a two-day visit to South Carolina. Biden also visited the banquet hall at Brookland Baptist Church. The incumbent Democrat is trying to rally South Carolina’s Black voters before the party’s primary on Feb. 3. Biden said Black churches teach the “power of faith.” He echoed words spoken by the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., saying Black churches offer people a mountaintop, a promised land, a dream and a faith that “we shall overcome.”
