Course Detail: OSH-BAPTIST - The Little Church That Could: A Tribute to the Revered Elam Baptist Church

Come and learn about this unusual 212 year old church, probably the earliest, independent, ongoing church founded by Blacks in the South, emphasizing their remarkable work in offering a place of worship; providing education even before slavery; and promoting political activity. Students would benefit from reading Dr. Dance's book, 'Land of the Free . . . . Negroes: A Historical Novel' prior to class.
