Roger “Bill” Terry Square

Submitted by:


On October 21, 2010, St. Philip’s Episcopal Church members, along with surviving Tuskegee Airmen, unveiled a sign designating the corner of 28th and Stanford as Roger “Bill” Terry Square. The sign honored the service of Roger “Bill” Terry, a Tuskegee Airman and a longtime member of the Los Angeles parish. Terry was an usher at the parish for more than 40 years. For many Sunday mornings Terry would stand at the corner of 28th and Stanford before services, shaking hands and greeting members and visitors. St. Philip’s is the oldest historically Black congregation in the Diocese of Los Angeles and was designated as an historical cultural landmark in 2010.
