Department of scholarship & research
The late Dean of African American history, Dr. John Hope Franklin, once wrote, “We must go beyond textbooks, go out into the bypaths and untrodden depths of the wilderness and travel and explore and tell the world the glories of our journey.” The African Methodist Episcopal Church must not only continue to research, write and discuss the wondrous legacy of the founding, contribution, and impact of our Zion. We must also ensure that we are a part of the living, dynamic, developing faith history of the world. There are still too many who are unaware the African Methodist Episcopal Church exists or of its formidable presence in the development of the church universal.
