Black History Month: February 5th!


Long time ago, the storefront church was a church housed in a storefront building. They were called storefronts because they were buildings that were once small stores that went out of business. The inside of the building was converted by putting in chairs and a makeshift pulpit. The storefront church also served as a hub for many poor African Americans to see leadership in an all black arena. Many storefronts emerged in the urban centers of the north and were filled with poor former slaves leaving the harsh memories of their former lives behind.

Storefront churches were a center of social development and free speech for many poor African Americans to express their feelings about the struggles and hardships they faced every day in their lives. They also provided a focus point for community unity and engagement.
