We wanted to see First African Baptist Church and just happened to show up as Johnny was starting a tour so we decided to join in and I'm glad we did. This tour was a good reality check after seeing some of the other notable buildings in the city.To learn of the sacrifices made by the enslaved blacks to build this church was very moving and the pride that our guide took in the role this congregation played through history was evident. Although the church building itself is not obviously "grand", it is certainly rich in spirit. Johnny was an excellent guide. The tour was about an hour in length.
