Remembering Bishop Richard Allen, AME Founder (podcast)
Recently the United States Postal service unveiled a new stamp featuring an important African American leader. This was the culmination of years of effort to have Richard Allen, founder of the African Methodist Episcopal, or AME Church, recognized in this manner.
In this episode we will hear the story of how this effort came to fruition, what it means for the AME church, and its importance to the ecumenical movement. We will be joined by Jackie Dupont-Walker with the Social Action Commission of the AME Church, and Rev. Joan Brown Campbell, former General Secretary of the National Council of Churches.
