Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, Charleston Overview

Also known as Mother Emanuel Church, this church in Charleston is the oldest African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church in the Southern United States. The church throws light on the struggle of the Blacks back in the day. It was established as a result of the revolt where blacks fought for their right to worship which was denied in churches controlled by the Whites. It is the first independent black denomination church in the United States. With a capacity of 2500 people, it is one of the largest black churches in Charleston. The Mother Emanuel Church is built on the lines of Gothic architecture and has a sense of serenity in its personality. Owing to COVID-19 pandemic, the church is not open to the public. Yet, it conducts live streaming through social media accounts and apps.
