Methodism in Black and White
Mark your calendars for another education opportunity through our Equality and Social Justice Committee!
Rev. Patti Walz will be offering a presentation entitled, “Methodism in Black and White.” Included will be photos of Philadelphia’s Historic St. George’s United Methodist Church and Mother Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church, and an overview of the difficult history of union and division. This photo was taken from St George’s balcony that was built with a segregated section for its Black members. Those members left the church, went down the street, and eventually developed the AME church. The presentation will be posted on the church’s Facebook and website on Friday, February 26.
