In 1791, a group of free blacks and slaves worshipped together as the Free African Society. These individuals are the foundation for what we know today as the African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston. Author Dr. Bernard Powers, a professor at the College of Charleston, will explore the origins of the church and how the church is connected to the larger story of America. He will also touch on the tragic events at the Mother Emanuel AME Church in June of 2015.

Join the Daniel Island Historical Society on March 22, 2016 at 7 p.m. at Providence Baptist Church on Daniel Island as we explore the history of the AME church – its trials, tribulations and triumphs – over the last two centuries.
