PHS LIVE Past Episode: African American Leaders & Congregations

September 1, 2020

On August 27, 2020, David Staniunas and Sonia Prescott led a Zoom webinar that looked at the African American Leaders & Congregations collecting initiative.

In recent years, PHS has brought human and capital resources to bear on collecting records of the African American Presbyterian experience--both the original records of African American congregations, and documentation of people’s lives and ministries. As a corrective measure for what Presbyterian historians have called a “historically racist ecclesiastical body,” PHS seeks to represent in the archives the integral presence of African Americans in the PC(USA).

Watch the video below to learn how PHS is committed to collecting the records of African American Presbyterians.
