This church was established in 1866 by freed slaves, together with members of the white Woodlawn Baptist Church (point 34). The current building
dates back to 1928, rebuilt with bricks from the original structure. Musical greats Sleepy John Estes and Tina Turner both worshipped here. Walk through the old cemetery to see markers detailing the church's history, including the story of Hardin Smith, the first slave allowed to preach to a congregation.
