The Nation's Prayer Call Vol. 2 No. 4
About the Project
Zion Baptist Church was organized in 1842 in Cincinnati, Ohio, and was one of the locations that actively aided fugitive slaves through the Underground Railroad. In 1867, the congregation built one of the first brick churches owned by African Americans in Cincinnati. Between the years of 1913 and 1926, almost 1,100 new members were added. This copy of “The Nation’s Prayer Call” from 1956 features an article on Baptists and integration, as well as several other articles. Help us transcribe this newsletter to find out why the author of the article thought that Baptists should not vote against integration.
