U.S. District Judge Alexander Williams Jr. is scheduled to speak Sunday morning at Asbury United Methodist Church in Annapolis.

Judge Williams, who presides over cases in the federal court in Greenbelt, has been on the federal bench since 1994.

"There is a need for our youth to see role models like Judge Williams," said Carl O. Snowden, director of the Office for Civil Rights for the Office of the Maryland Attorney General. Snowden said Williams will speak as part of the service, which is open to the public, at 11 a.m.

Among his degrees, Williams received his undergraduate and law degrees from Howard University, as well a master's degree from the School of Divinity there. From 1987 to 1994, he was the elected state's attorney in Prince George's County.
