Looking Back, Moving Ahead


Abyssinian celebrated Black History Month with a special book signing to mark the release of Witness: Two Hundred Years of African-American Faith and Practice at the Abyssinian Baptist Church of Harlem, New York.

Witness is a detailed history of the church beginning with its formal organization in 1809, up to its 200th anniversary year in 2008 and explores the important role Abyssinian has played in the history of New York City.
