About

Overview

The 4,379 annuals comprising this collection are derived from a number of African-American Baptist associations. So extensive and inclusive is this collection that it is believed to be the largest known compilation of its kind. The Society’s mission was to collect "all such books, pamphlets, periodicals, statistical papers and manuscripts, as pertain to the history of the churches and other societies, the biographies of individuals, and all kinds of documents that relate to ecclesiastical history."

Provided here are the minutes of 1,039 African-American Baptist associations and conventions in 27 states and regions. In addition, the annuals contain statistical information about member churches; ministerial lists; sermons preached at the annual meeting; and an array of data pertaining to religious, historical, and sociological concerns.
