First Baptist Beale Street Church
The historic First Baptist Beale Street Church, located at the end of the entertainment district, merits the "historic" tag for a number of reasons. For one thing, it was the first and largest Negro Missionary Church, built just after the Civil War. In the 1890s, Ida B. Wells used the basement of the church to publish the Free Speech and Headlights newspaper, one of the first newspapers written specifically for an African-American audience. The church is included in the Heritage Tour of Historic Churches. Call +1 901 527 3427 for information or call the church office recording and leave a message for a private tour.
the beauty of it's structure, all of the historical facts that are displayed around the church, especially thepicturesof the marches, just looking at the civil rights movement, feeling, seeing the smiles, struggle, pain, joy, sadness, and strength along with faith to stand on the firmness of God's word. My live visit with worship was out of this world. The choir is anointed and the they still sing; i mean sing hymns. Praise the Lord. I am going back on this Wednesday night for their Bible study session and greatly expect to return in October for their 137th church anniversary.
