The African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church has a unique history in that it is the first major religious denomination that had its origin over sociological rather than theological beliefs and differences. This class will focus on the historic evolution of the AME Church and its intersection with major social movements over time. We will explore the traditional and contemporary worship practices, mission in the community, trailblazing women in the church, and its global reach.
