A Thank You Letter to Richard Allen and the Torchbearers of the AME Church
Written by Florcy Morisset
As we mourn the loss of Alton Sterling, Philando Castille and the five police officers in Dallas, I’d like to share a moment of thanks, triumph and send a call to action. I had the honor of curating “The Extraordinary History of the African Methodist Episcopal Church,” on the backdrop of the AME Church’s Bicentennial Celebration. This moment was special because I am AME and a proud member of Mother Bethel AME Church, the first AME Church founded by Richard Allen in 1787.
