Early Black Methodism, Presented by Syl Woolford

Early Black Methodism, Presented by Syl Woolford


In his vision of the Methodist Episcopal Church, John Wesley created a religion in which all human beings were equal in the sight of the Lord. When his disciples (Francis Asbury, Richard Whatcoat and Thomas Coke) came to American to convert the early Americans to Methodism, they included the plantations and the slaves as part of their circuit rides. Slaves made up twenty-five percent of converts to early Methodism.

This is the story of early Black preachers such as Richard Allen, Peter Spencer, Absalom Jones, “Daddy” Moses and Harry Hosier riding from camp to camp, meeting and creating some of the great African American Methodist denominations of today.
