The University of North Carolina has transcribed to HTML a number of our histories as part of the DOcumentation of the South project. You may find links to them on my History Page on the Reedy Chapel (Galveston) web site. Additional on-line historical records are there as well.

Here are two books to consider for your research: 1) Dark Salvation by Harry Richardson; 2) The Romance of African Methodism by Singleton. Both are considered classics.

Everyone, if you have not done so already, I highly recommend visiting Jerryl's History Page. It is full of great historical resources particularly pertaining to the AME Church. (I've known Jerryl for a long time--the guy is a genius!)
