Summary
A comprehensive history of the first hundred years of the African Methodist Episcopal (A.M.E.) Church which details the genesis of the Bethel Churches in Baltimore and Philadelphia, including the poor treatment of blacks in white churches that ultimately led to the formation of separate denominations for the races and the spread of the A.M.E. Church to New York, westward to California and north to Canada. Also the Church's activities in Haiti and Santo Domingo, missionaries situations--their hopes as well as the obstacles they faced and the question of missions to Africa are addressed. Other topics include religious observance (such as the keeping of the Sabbath as well as the matter of divorce) and political significance (such as slavery and abolition), Bishop Morris Brown, and music in the Church. Drawn from manuscripts, church records, journals, pamphlets, minutes of Conferences, and letters, including many by Richard Allen, Payne's History of the African Methodist Episcopal Church is a comprehensive resource for readers interested in A.M.E. church history and African American history
