Lecture: "Historical Archaeology at Bethel Missionary Baptist Church" by Ken Brown, Crystal Granger & Debra Blacklock-Sloan

Community Archaeology Research Institute

Learn about the recent archeological and historical work done at the site of the Bethel Missionary Baptist Church in Freedmen's Town. The church site is now being converted to a public park by the City of Houston, and recent excavations there have unearthed significant underground remains that date back to the original church built by Jack Yates in 1891.

This presentation by Ken Brown, along with Crystal Granger (Urban Architecture) and Debra Blacklock-Sloan, will discuss this archeological and historical research, which was conducted as a collaboration between Community Archeology Research Institute staff, the University of Houston, historians and architects at Urban Architecture and the original Bethel congregation.
