This United Methodist church broke a longtime custom of not permitting black organizations or individuals to build on Broad Street. Charles Albert Tindley, who wrote the hymn "We Shall Overcome," build this imposing religious structure I 1924. It has been a cultural and religious mainstay of the area ever since.
