An award-winning Memphis pastor hits a major milestone.

This fall, Dr. James Netters will celebrate 60 years at the same church, Mt. Vernon Baptist.

Dr. Netters is also the oldest living activist that was part of the Civil Rights Movement.

He's here with Patricia Davis, who has organized an event in his honor.
