American Baptist Churches of Pennsylvania and Delaware

ABHMS Honors Black History Month



Throughout the month of February, and continuing each Thursday, American Baptist Home Mission Societies (ABHMS) will feature a different prominent Baptist individual on its website in honor of Black History Month.

Having lived in various time periods, ranging from the 1800s to the 2000s, all of these courageous male and female Baptist leaders transformed lives with God’s love—whether through preaching and teaching or advocacy and civil rights.

While they served as the hands, feet and voice of Jesus Christ in their own times and communities, they continue to serve as role models of Christian faith and tenacity, inspiring American Baptists today.
